Meet the ‘Benjamin Button’ of Bangladesh who looks 80, but is just 4 years old

He has a mind of a four-year-old but the looks of an 80-year-old senior citizen.

Bayezid Hossain, from Magura in southern Bangladesh, has a disease that ages the body at eight times the normal rate.

He has a swollen face, saggy skin, achy joints and difficulties passing urine, reported The Daily Mail.
His 18-year-old mother, Tripti Khatun, said that he grew a full set of teeth when he was just three months old. But now at four, his teeth are already weak and broken, said the report. Bayezid suffers from progeria which causes the rapid ageing. Progeria patients typically don’t live past 13 years old. He also reportedly has a form of cutis laxa, a rare connective tissue disorder which causes the skin to hang loosely in folds. Combined, the skin of such a patient can start getting loose like an elderly person months after birth. Bayezid understands his condition, but he doesn’t like talking about it. “He just cries when he feels awkward,” said his father, Lovelu Hossain, 22. He doesn’t go to school because other children are afraid of him. When he was born, he became the talk of the village when neighbours heard about the birth of the abnormal child. “I was terrified to see him when he was born. He was just flesh and bones. He looked like an alien and it was heartbreaking for me,” said Tripti. ( continue reading to the Next page To See the full story )
