Progeria


Did You Know: Progeria also know as "Accelerated Aging Disease" or Hutchinson-Gilford Disease. This disease causes rapid physical changes at an early age. Rapid aging is the main manifestation and the disease usually results in death by about 20 years of age. The individual can look like they are 50 or 60 by the age of 10. Usually other systems are not disturbed. For example the individual does not show signs of senility or dementia are usually are associated with old age.

The cause is due to a defect in a protein called Protein Laminin A. Some common symptoms are listed below:



  • Growth failure during the first year of life
  • Narrow, wizened (shrunken or wrinkled) bird-like faces
  • Baldness
  • Loss of eyebrows and eyelashes
  • Short stature
  • Large head for size of face (macrocephaly )
  • Soft spot (fontanelle) remains open
  • Small jaw (micrognathia )
  • Dry, scaly, thin skin
  • Limited range of motion
