In the history of mankind there have always been many stories of deception with age. But surprisingly, the endless succession of charades and puzzles of supercentenarians continues today. A full-fledged discussion of these extremely dubious modern cases of marginal longevity is missing. An example of this is the most famous case of the world record for life expectancy - the case of Calment. On the basis of the assessment of the photo and video materials of Calment, the author at the beginning of 2018 expressed the professional clinical opinion of the geriatrician that this case does not correspond to the severity of the clinical picture of old age to the patient’s stated age. This suggests that a younger woman than Calment, born in 1875, used her documents and biography. Since this case is presented as an example of the highest quality work done on verifying the age, it requires special attention of the scientific community.
