Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS) Treatment: Introduction

  • Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), is a rare, fatal, genetic condition in children with striking features resembling premature aging. Children with progeria usually have a normal appearance in early infancy.
  • At approximately nine to 24 months of age, affected children begin to experience profound growth delays, resulting in short stature and low weight.
  • They also develop a distinct facial appearance, characterized by a disproportionately small face in comparison to the head, an underdeveloped jaw, malformation and crowding of the teeth, abnormally prominent eyes, a small nose, and a subtle blueness around the mouth.
  • Furthermore, by the second year of life, the scalp hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes are lost (alopecia), and the scalp hair may be replaced by small, downy, white or blond hair
