Little Lillie Sutcliffe faces a lifetime of hospital treatment to stop her body "turning to stone".

Lillie, five, was born with a rare, incurable condition which affects less than one in three million people.

Cysitinosis leads to a build-up of amino acid in the form of crystals, causing problems in the kidney, thyroid gland, eyes and liver.

Mum Laura Milner, 29, said yesterday: "It means Lillie's body is turning to crystal. They just load up inside her.

If it wasn't treated she'd eventually turn to stone."

How very sad!
I've never heard of this condition before


Cystinosis is a lysosomal storage disease characterized by the abnormal accumulation of the amino acid cystine. It is a genetic disorder that typically follows an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. Cystinosis is the most common cause of Fanconi syndrome in the pediatric age group. Fanconi syndrome occurs when the function of cells in renal tubules are impaired, leading to abnormal amounts of carbohydrates and amino acids in the urine, excessive urination, and low blood levels of potassium and phosphates.

I've read it, researched it a bit and I still can't believe it
doesn't it seem like X-Men?

Doesn't it seem like mutation are becoming a common thing?
I know this condition is not common
But such things are becoming more and more common

This is pretty sad.

I watched that one guy talking about the swine flu, and he also got on the topic of other disorders and diseases that are becoming more and more common such ass autism, and cancers. Sounds like he's right.

The deadly effect of prions is similar -- causing protein crystallization. In this case, it's a different protein and the decease is gradual.
