Progeria – Symptoms – Genetics – Diagnosis – Treatment - Prognosis
An Indian Story
Rural Bihar, with all its backwardness, is hardly a place for Khan’s special family. They were considered a bad omen and were ostracized.
It is not common for a family to have more than one child with progeria. Bisul Khan’s is the only family in the world with 5 cases of this dreadful condition.
A documentary titled “The 80 Year Old Children” was made in 2005, based on the real-life story of Bisul Khan’s special family.
