Sighted this article at Coast 2 Coast, and the actual article is here:

“We think that she has a mutation in the genes that control her ageing and development so that she appears to have been frozen in time.

A truly amazing story! I hope that the young girl isn't adversely affected by whatever is causing her to age so slowly. I hope that this really does benefit her, and is not just some affliction that is the opposite of Progeria. Hopefully she isn't really aging on the inside, as that would be terrible. If she is indeed nearly immortal, then we also have to hope that she isn't subjected to a lifetime of pain and suffering from medical studies.

Please post if you know what this condition is, and/or if you have heard of this happening to someone else. It seems from the article that something like this has never happened before, but I don't profess to be an expert on genetics.

Again, I wish Brooke Greenberg a full and happy life, free from any damaging effects of this unique condition.
