What is progeria, and what are the causes, symptoms, and treatments for it?
PROGERIA, also known as Benjamin Button disease, is a rare medical condition that affects children.
With fewer than 1,000 cases reported each year, the condition is extremely rare.
Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), is a rare and fatal genetic condition.
The disease is known to cause rapid aging in children, resulting in a shorter life span.
The average life expectancy for children diagnosed with cancer is about 13 years.
Werner’s syndrome, also known as “adult progeria,” is a type of Progeria that does not show symptoms until late in adolescence and causes those who are diagnosed to live into their 40s and 50s.
Around one out of every four million babies in the world will be born with the disease.
A lamin A (LMNA) gene mutation is responsible for progeria.
Progeria is characterized by the following symptoms:
“Children with Progeria begin to display many characteristics of accelerated aging within the first two years of life,” according to the Progeria Foundation.
“Growth failure, loss of body fat and hair, wrinkled skin, stiffness of joints, hip dislocation, generalized atherosclerosis, cardiovascular (heart) disease, and stroke are all signs of progeria.
“Despite their diverse ethnic backgrounds, the children have a strikingly similar appearance.
At the average age of fourteen years, children with Progeria die of atherosclerosis (heart disease).”
Despite their physical difficulties, it is believed that they retain all of their mental abilities, unlike some elderly people who develop dementia and related conditions as they age.
Progeria has no effect on the reproductive organs, and women who have the disease have given birth to healthy babies.
Progeria is incurable at this time.
While there is no cure for the disease, there are treatments for the complications it causes, such as coronary bypass surgery.
Occupational and physical therapy are frequently used to help children.
