A sad video has surfaced of a 29-year-old man who is still a baby due to a rare medical issue that prevents him from growing.

An touching video of a 29-year-old man who is still a baby because he can't grow due to a rare ailment that has stunted his development has gone viral. 

Pingping is the name of the infant man, and he suffers from Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS). 

Benjamin Button syndrome is the unofficial name for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) or progeria, according to Google. 

Because their cells absorb a protein called progerin that is released by a mistake in their DNA, the rare hereditary condition affects one out of every four million babies, causing them to age rapidly.

Children with progeria appear healthy at birth, but within the first two years of life, they begin to show signs of fast aging. The majority of them die by the age of 13 or 14, however others live into their early twenties. Heart disease or stroke are the most common causes of death. 

Pingping is treated like a toddler in a video that has gone popular on social media, despite the fact that he is old enough to have started his own family.
