Progeria (Huntchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome) is a very rare genetic disorder whereby symptoms resembling the aspects of aging are manifested at an early age. Children with Progeria tend to display characteristics of accelerated aging around 18-24 months. By studying this rare disease, researchers have not only been able to further their understanding of it but they have also been able to deepen their knowledge on the human aging process as well as cardiovascular disease (Source: Rare Disease Report).
