Residents of Bangladesh, Biswajit and his wife, Parul Patro, have been busy attending curious guests who have been thronging their home to catch a glimpse of their son. Their newborn is barely a few days old but looks like an 80 years old. The baby boy has wrinkles on the face, has a very shrunken body and hollow eyes.
The baby was born in the district of Magura, Bangladesh, on Sunday. Local doctors, who have been left stunned, say the baby suffers from a rare condition called progeria. ‘The baby does not look like a new born at all. There are prominent sings of ageing such a excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture,’ said a doctor who has been treating the baby.
However, the parents of the baby are jubilant with the birth of their ‘miracle’ child. Biswajit Patro, who is a farmer by profession , was ecstatic and couldn’t hold back his happiness over the arrival of his son.
He said of the birth: “We can only thank . There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is. We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house.”
