Believe it or not, a new born baby boy is found to be suffering from a rare condition which makes him look like an 80-year-old man.
Doctors were stunned when they found that the baby has hollow eyes, wrinkles, a shrunken body and a thick layer of hair on his back. The boy is believed to have a rare health condition called progeria which often restricts children from having a normal life and causes their body to age faster than it should. The condition affects just one in four million.
“The baby does not look like a new born at all,” said the doctor who had been treating the new born, reported Daily Mail. “There are prominent sings of ageing such a excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture.”
The miracle baby’s parents aren’t really concerned about their baby’s looks and seems to be quite happy welcoming the newborn in the family.
“We can only thank God. There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son,” said father Biswajit Patro. “We will accept him the way he is. We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house. We are already blessed to have to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for.”
