A four-year-old boy resembles an 80-year-old pensioner due to an incredibly rare condition. In a report published by Dailymail, Bayezid Hossain, from outside Magura, southern Bangladesh, suffers a swollen face, hollow eyes, sagging skin, aching joints, difficulties passing urine and already has weak and broken teeth.

As a result, people in the community stay away from him and children are afraid to play with him, despite him having above average intelligence.
Bayezid is believed to suffer from progeria, which ages the body at eight times the normal rate.
The disorder is said to have inspired the F Scott Fitzgerald novel and Brad Pitt movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, in which the character is born an old man and ages backwards.

Progeria patients normally die from heart attacks or strokes at an average age of 13. Bayezid also has a form of cutis laxa, a rare connective tissue disorder in which the skin hangs loosely in folds.
