A real life ‘curious case of Benjamin Button’ has emerged following the birth of a baby boy who looks like an 80-year-old man.

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 boy has wrinkles on the face, has a very shrunken body and hollow eyes.

“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.

    THIS IS SO HEARTBREAKING. THIS SWEET INNOCENT BABY. I HOPE IT IS DEARLY LOVED AND TAKEN GOOD CARE OF. THEY DON'T SHOW IT BEING BOTTLE OR BREAST FED OR COMFORTED. IT SEEMS TO BE HANDLED SO CLINICALLY AND NOT CAREFULLY. DEAR JESUS PLEASE PROTECT THIS LITTLE HELPLESS BABY AND KEEP HER/HIM SAFE AND DEARLY LOVED AND HAPPY, IN JESUS NAME!

      I so agree with you bertha. The video was heartbreaking in the way everyone was handling him. I'm a L&D/Pediatrics Nurse Supervisor in a High-Risk Hospital, & I wish I could hold & cuddle this baby. I hope someone is kissing & singing to him while rocking & comforting him.

        I also agree. And why did she lay him back down instead of cleaning him up? I hate to say it but every time I see an east Indian medical video the people always seem to be so callus. I also want to know if the baby lived? May God Bless him and watch over him and please that he does not suffer! Amen!

        I agree!!! He had pooped and they didn't even try to clean him up! They kept holding him up so people could see the hair on his back, and then laid him back down into the mess. It is so heartbreaking! In America, he would have been taken care of and cared for as if he were like any other baby. I suspect they don't...

    Right... I dont believe it. Why do stories like this, UFOs, Reptillian people, murmaids and fairies... these stories always come out of third world countries and there is never any 1st world science confirming any of it.

      There are lots of reasons you see these more in other countries. Most of the countries have far higher population levels and population growth than 1st world countries. Also, the lack of general health care raises the possibility for some conditions. But this is progeria, and has been well documented, and happens here in the US, too. Look it up, it's a very interesting condition.

      There are many children with Progeria here in the U.S. & across the globe. The reason why you don't hear about children like this from other countries is b/c it isn't reported on the evening news. When you consider how over-populated so many third world countries are, & the fact that women there often don't have access to any pre-natal care, & frequently don't have good, advanced modern health-care during or after delivery. I agree that the National Enquirer boasts disgusting & salacious headlines about reptile & mermaid babies. However, in reality there was a little girl known as a mermaid girl b/c she was born with her legs fused together from to toes to tail. That little girl named Shiloh Pepin, in Maine, was a guest on the Oprah show, & had to have her urethra & anus re-positioned so that she could survive, however she sadly only lived until she was 10 years old. There are also babies born with werewolf syndrome, which is actually a genetic mutation where the child is covered in hair, sometimes just excessive hair where you would normally have hair, & sometimes it covers the entire body, including the face. The child in this story has a genetic defect called Progeria. Children affected with Progeria age at a frighteningly rapid rate. They suffer from similar health problems as elderly people, with thin skin that tears easily & fragile bones that break so easily that just playing like a 'normal', healthy child would shatter their bones. Sadly, these children also have a tragically short lifetime. As a L&D/Pediatrics Nurse, I can assure you that there are far too many of these children born in the US & across the globe, with horrible genetic diseases. As a L&D/Pediatrics Nurse since 1994 & a supervisor in a High-Risk Hospital, I wish that there weren't real children throughout the world suffering from such tragic & painful health problems, but I've seen enough to know that it does exist.

      Because it is in the third world that there are few to no environmental protections. Companies are allowed to dump their waste and chemicals with impunity. Poisoning the air, water, foods. And these birth defects and mutations are the results.

      excuse me? Don't blame a birth defect on false religions...it can and does happen to christian parents as well. With comments like yours, no wonder people are so negative towards Christians! What a cold attitude you have...

        Read the bible and the 10 commandments ok God said that to follow another god is IDOLATRY ! He also CURSED those who followed other false gods in the bible so you are IGNORANT of what God says in his Word and if you have a problem with it, take it up with God for I am just the messenger, and repeating what He said. Yes it can happen to Christians but they have the POWER and AUTHORITY to break THAT generational curse by the blood of the Lamb if they follow the Word and if they would pray over their baby in the womb then the baby could be healed by God, and also just because people say that they are CHRISTIANS doesn't mean that they follow God or his BIBLE either, and could be sinning as well, so I am your enemy because I tell you the TRUTH ?

        Sorry if you are offended by it but like I said its what GOD says NOT me ok and its NOT a cold attitude its just that you don't want to hear it is all, that is the sad fact, the others put their faith in false gods and this is what happens so don't attack me for what I am saying,

        God also judges us and if you are NOT born again and repent of your sins and believe that Jesus died and rose on the cross, then you will go to hell John 3:3, Luke 13:3, but that is TRUE LOVE to them so that they don't die and go to hell, if you care about someone that is the TRUE love ! God will also ask you what you did for Jesus on Judgement Day as well and if you put him FIRST, but that isn't very loving is it ??? But again its the TRUTH, and when the prophets told the truth they were KILLED because no one wanted to HEAR IT AND called them HARSH and MEAN to say what they did and God also called people WHITEWASHED TOMBS AND HYPOCRITES as well, so that doesn't' seem that loving either does it ? God is a God of love and judgement and if you take one out then you are just following your will and way and not GODS will and way, that is why there are so many false churches out there because they want to ADD or TAKE AWAY from the bible but that is a SIN, Deut 4:2

    Where are all the billionaires who say they help third world countries. If they pledge so much, why are babies being born like this? I am sure a test would have alerted the parents as to what was wrong with the baby.
