ISLAMABAD, May 6, (AP): The two brothers have come to be known as the “solar kids” and their case has mystified Pakistani doctors. Aged nine and 13, the boys are normal active children during the day. But once the sun goes down, they both lapse into a vegetative state — unable to move or talk. Javed Akram, a professor of medicine at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences, told The Associated Press on Thursday that he had no idea what was causing the symptoms. Akram said the government was providing free medical care to the siblings, who come from an impoverished family.
