Rare condition makes 29-year-old woman look 80 after childbirth | Fox News.

I came across this article today about a rare disorder.  It was certainly depressing, but almost any topic related to aging is interesting to me, and therefore worth posting.  A young woman from China at age 29 gave birth to her first child.  After the birth, she began to show signs of rapid aging.  She suffers from cutix laxa-  a connective tissue disorder.  She is otherwise healthy.

Her son is now embarrassed to tell his friends that she is his mother.  What a horrible thing to experience.  Thankfully, her husband is supportive.  There are only about 200 cases of this worldwide.
