A newborn baby in Magura, Bangladesh has a rare condition that makes him look like an 80-year-old man.
The infant stunned attending doctors after he was born with wrinkles, hollow eyes, a shrunken body and a thick layer of hair on his back.
Apparently, he has a rare condition called Progeria. The syndrome causes wrinkles on the face, a very sunken body and hollow eyes.
“The baby does not look like a new born at all. There are prominent signs of aging such an excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture,” the attending doctor said.
Despite the baby’s appearance, his parents were still happy for his birth.
Biswajit Patro, the baby’s father said, “We can only thank God. There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is. We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house.
Biswajit and his wife, Parul, welcomed curious people in their home just to catch a glimpse of their son.
“Relatives, neighbours and even people from neighbouring villages have come to see our son. We are already blessed to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for,” Bijwajit said:
The doctors has assured the family that the baby will do well for now. But they were uncertain to what measures can be taken to treat the baby and help him with the condition as he grows older.
