  • Progeria

    Typical symptoms

    Children with progeria usually grow the first symptoms during their first few months of life. The soonest side effects may incorporate an inability to flourish and a limited scleroderma-like skin condition. As a child ages past infancy, extra conditions get to be obvious typically around 18–24 months. Constrained development, full-body alopecia, and a particular appearance (a little face with a shallow recessed jaw, and a squeezed nose) are all qualities of progeria. Signs and manifestations of this progressive disease have a tendency to wind up more marked as the child ages. Later, the condition reasons wrinkled skin, atherosclerosis, kidney disappointment, loss of visual perception, and cardiovascular issues.

  • Progeria

    HGPS is caused by a mutation in the gene called LMNA (pronounced “lamin-a”). The LMNA gene produces the lamin A protein which is the structural scaffolding that holds the nucleus of a cell together. The abnormal lamin A protein that causes Progeria is called progerin. Progerin makes the nucleus unstable. That cellular instability leads to the process of premature aging and disease in Progeria.
