Mother gives birth to a baby boy who has become a real life case of ‘Benjamin Button’ due to the rare condition he was born with.
Born in the district of Magura, Bangladesh, the newborn suffers from the rare condition called Progeria.
One medic, who has been treating the little boy said: ”The baby does not look like a new born at all. There are prominent signs of ageing such a excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture.”
However, the parents of the baby are jubilant with the birth of their ‘miracle’ child.
Biswajit Patro, a farmer, was ecstatic and couldn’t hold back his happiness over the arrival of his son, reports The Sun.
He said of the birth: “We can only thank God. 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.”
Biswajit and his wife, Parul Patro, said they have been getting used to the interest in their baby’s unusual appearance from curious guests.
He added: “We have been getting a lot of visitors. Relatives, neighbours and even people from neighbouring villages have come to see our son.
“We are happy to host them all. We are already blessed to have to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for.”
The doctors at the local hospital assured the Patro family the baby would do well for now. However, it is still uncertain what measures can be taken to treat the condition.
