Progeria, which is also known as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome, is a very rare genetic disorder which mimics aspects of aging when the patient is still young, usually between 18 months and 2 years of age. These children generally exhibit normal motor and mental development. There is no treatment, other than reduction of symptoms, and children who have it rarely reach the age of 14, and the most common causes of death are heart attack or stroke.
