A new baby boy has been born with a rare genetic disorder which affects one in 8 million births worldwide, making him look like an elderly man.

The baby boy was born in Magura district, Bangladesh, with a rare condition called progeria.

Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), is a rare genetic condition that causes a child's body to age fast. Most kids with progeria do not live past the age of 13. The disease affects both sexes and all races equally. It affects about 1 in every 8 million births worldwide.

A doctor treating the baby said "the baby does not look like a new born at all. There are prominent sings of ageing such a excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture."

The parents of the strange looking baby said they are excited about having the baby. The baby's father, Biswajit Patro, said there was no need to be "unhappy" about the appearance of the baby.

"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," he said.

The appearance of the baby has been the source of curiosity, with neighbors flocking to see the child.

"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," said Biswajit.

"We are already blessed to have to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for."

The baby's uncle Arabindu Mondal said expressed hope that baby will lead a long and healthy life.

"The baby looks old because his father also looks more than his age. I just hope that the baby will lead a long and healthy life,” he said.
