New born baby with rare disease looks like an 80-year-old
The moment I saw this news, it actually reminded me of the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” which came out in 2008 featuring Brad Pitt, where Brad actually ages back in reverse. But this baby’s condition is different. This poor boy baby from Magura, Bangladesh suffers from a rare condition known as progeria, which causes him to age faster than normal.
With hollow eyes, excessive wrinkles, rough skin texture, unusual hairy back and the looks of an 80-year-old, is not what a mother wants to see in her new born baby with rare disease. Even though the world is shocked to hear about the baby with rare disease, the baby’s parents couldn’t care less.
“There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is” said the baby’s Dad, Biswajit Patro, a farmer. Despite the fact children with progeria often do not live past the age of 13, the baby’s parents are showing a great positive attitude.
