This is a case report of a 6-year-old male patient with distinctive features of an extremely rare genetic disorder wherein symptoms resembling premature aging are manifested at an early age. This disorder has a very low incidence rate, occurring in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births. Wrinkled skin, a small face with a shallow recessed jaw and a pinched nose are among the characteristic features.
