Man Believes Liver Transplant Changed Skin Color

Semen Gendler, from Krasnodar, Russia needed a liver transplant after being diagnosed with hepatitis C and cancer.

Gendler contacted business partners in the USA and flew there for his operation. It cost him over $325,000 to receive the liver of an unnamed, 38-year-old African-American man. His life was saved, but something interesting happened. His skin started changing color.

His work colleague, Igor Atamanenko, said, "I noticed that his skin was getting darker. When he told me they had given him the liver of an African-American man, I guess that was probably the reason for the color change. I have known my friend for years and he has always been if anything extremely pale, and now for the first time ever he is becoming dark skinned."

Mr. Gendler denied that it was a sun tan. He explained, "I could end up much darker than this to be honest, I don't care. The main thing is that the liver works and I am healthy. It's incredible, I am now so full of energy and living between two cities in New York and Krasnodar and if my skin ends up dark who cares, I certainly don't."
