limor vaknin's insight:
I choose the topic because i saw one of the famous progeria children,adalia rose,on facebook and i think: "why does she look so strange?״ i "google" it and found my topic. Before the online it was so hard to me to see the progeria children pictures but now,when i learn about the disease and aware of progeria, it became easier.

Progeria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Progeria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Progeria () ( Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, HGPS, progeria syndrome) is an extremely rare genetic disorder wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age. Progeria is one of several progeroid syndromes. The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" ( πρό), meaning "before" or "premature", and "gēras" ( γῆρας), meaning "old age".
