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.

  • Hopefully this condition doesn’t affect his future.
    Welcome to the world, little one! :-)


  • What a beautiful outlook the parents have. It sounds like they are a truly devout couple.


  • Oh no, poor little darling. A face only a mother can love. I can see a hard road ahead for this little man


  • Hopefully the baby has a healthy future to look forward to. If wonder if there is treatment available from any source to stop his skin from thinning as an elderly person’s does and makes it more prone to general injury.


  • Poor little baby -


  • Thankfully he has a family who love him no matter what. I hope he doesn’t have too many medical problems in the future.


  • The baby boy has a lot of character in his face, and I think his family sound so loving and accepting. Thankfully this turned out to be a good news story.


  • Wishing the family all the best and hope the baby will live a normal and healthy life.


  • What an amazingly wonderful attitude this father has , I wish them all the very best and pray this little chap does not have any more health issues in future life.


  • beautiful little fella!


  • I’m happy for the family and hope that he doesn’t have too many medical issues in the future.
