    How to use "Pachydermia" in context?

    Pachydermia is a medical condition caused by an overgrowth of the skin and underlying tissue. Normally, these tissues protect the body from weather and infection. In pachydermia, the cells in these tissues multiply excessively, leading to an abnormal thickness of the skin. Pachydermia can also cause an abnormal sized heart, liver, or other organs. Symptoms of pachydermia can vary, but they typically involve an increase in body temperature, a bloated appearance, and an inability to sweat. Treatment options depend on the severity of the condition.
