Hey guys, I came across the disorder called Progeria syndrome. So anybody have any info and personal experience of handling people with the syndrome, please put forward ur knowledge on the subject. This is a very rare disorder and people affected by it show early ageing, stunted growth, disable body, loss of hair, severe heart problems and so on. They die by the age of 13 and the symptoms are not seen till they are 2 yrs old. There isn't a definite cure for the syndrome and it predominantly leads to death. A few individuals have however lived beyond the age of twenty. So everyone can put forth their own knowledge on the syndrome
