Doctors in Magura, Bangladesh recently received the shock of their lives when they delivered a baby boy unlike any newborn they’d seen before.
With a tiny shrunken body and excessive wrinkles, the baby was born with a condition that makes him look like an 80-year-old man. He also has a thick layer of dark hair on his back, and his skin is extremely rough to the touch.
Now, his story is going viral and bringing more awareness to the life-threatening condition.
Though doctors aren’t 100% certain as to what caused him to look so old, they believe it’s the result of progeria, a rare condition that affects just one in four million people.
Progeria is a genetic disorder in which aging-like symptoms manifest at an early age, and in this little boy’s case, right from birth. Those born with progeria typically have a shorter life span and live to their mid-teens to early twenties.
People from the community are now flocking to his home to catch a glimpse of his unique face and body — but wait until you see what the baby’s parents have to say about the latest addition to their family.
