Abstract:   (463 Views)
Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), a rare genetic condition occurs one in every 8 million live births. HGPS is characterized by premature aging in various organs. The average survival rate of the affected patients is 13 years, and their most common causes of death are myocardial infarction and stroke. This disease occurs due to a gene mutation in the chromosomes of the patient. There is no definitive treatment for progeria, and most patients die at the age of 8 to 10 years. Scientists are interested in identifying this syndrome, as it may reveal the signs of a natural aging process at an early age. The studied patient was older than the global average with no cardiovascular disease and suffered from appendicitis.
