Progeria Syndrome

06
Jan

Progeria Syndrome - Cardiac DysfunctionProgeria is a rare genetic condition that produces rapid aging in children. It is a rare condition that is remarkable because its symptoms strongly resemble normal human aging, but occur in young children. It usually is not passed down through families. Rarely is it seen in more than one child in a family.

Progeria is sometimes called Hutchinson–Gilford Progeria Syndrome, Hutchinson–Gilford syndrome, and Progeria Syndrome. As there is no known cure, few people with progeria exceed 13 years of age. At least 90% of patients die from complications of atherosclerosis, such as heart attack or stroke.

This project required a medical literature search and identification of resources related to any genetic components of progeria syndrome. The relationship to stroke and heart attack was also explored. Additional sub-topics included the causes, incidence and risk factors associated with progeria syndrome.
