Progeria, also called as Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome, is a very uncommon, progressive genetic disorder that causes kids to age fast, starting in their first two years of life. Normally, kids with progeria appear normal at birth. Symptoms and signs, such as hair loss and slow growth, start to appear during the first year.
The disease was named after the town where it first was recorded, Brainerd, Minnesota. Individuals afflicted with this disease can experience in excess of 20 episodes of diarrhea each day for up to one year.
