Progeria is a rare disease, fatal genetic condition that produces rapid aging, beginning in childhood also known as "Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome" or "HGPS" and "Hutchinson–Gilford syndrome" wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at an early age. Progeria was first described in an academic journal by Dr. Jonathan Hutchinson in 1886, and Dr. Hastings Gilford in 1897 - both in England.
