  • Extremely rare: Fewer than 1,000 cases per year in the US
  • "HGPS is caused by the random mutation of a single gene that causes children to age rapidly.

The disease causes atherosclerosis—fatty deposits that clog arteries—and patients with the illness die from cardiovascular complications such as stroke or myocardial infarction in their teens."
