Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Condition
Progeria, which is also known as Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome, is a serious, uncommon, progressive genetic disorder which makes children age fast. It starts in their first two years of life.
Children who have progeria generally look normal at birth. During the first year, signs and symptoms, like slow growth and hair loss, start to show.
About 500 children around the world are affected by Hutchinson-Gilford progeria. People with the condition have an average life expectancy of 13 years.
