The young boy who looks like an old man could make a full recovery says doctor
A four-year-old boy is unaware of the rare condition that makes him look like an elderly man.
Just like any typical four-year-old, Bayzid Sikder loves playing football, eating his mum’s dinners and enjoying cuddles with his grandad.
But his sagging skin and wrinkles make Bayzid, from Magura, Bangladesh, look more like an elderly man than a young boy who is yet to go to school.
Medical experts have been left stumped by his condition and despite Bayzid’s family taking him to numerous hospitals across Bangladesh, doctors have tried and failed to come up with either a diagnosis or treatment.
Dr Debashish Biswas, a consultant at Magura hospital, believes Bayzid can eventually make a full recovery but admits the potentially expensive medication could hold up treatment.
