Abstract

Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. It was reported in literature as one case in eight million and causes growth retardation, hair loss, lipodystrophy, scleroderma-like skin and pulmonary changes, osteolysis, early atherosclerosis and facial features that resemble those of older people. Here, we report the case of a 16-year-old Iraqi girl with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome and pulmonary Fibrosis.
