Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a rare lethal genetic disorder characterized by symptoms reminiscent of accelerated aging. The major underlying genetic cause is a substitution mutation in the gene coding for lamin A, causing the production of a toxic isoform called progerin.

What is Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria. Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria is a progressive genetic disorder. It is also called as Hutchinson Gilford progeria syndrome or (HGPS).

It appears normal at birth. It causes early aging of the child, beginning in their first two years of life.
