Jerly Lyngdoh, Worlds Oldest Baby discovered in India

Jerly Lyngdoh, the worlds oldest baby, has Doctors and Pediatricians in India scratching their heads.

26 year old Jerly Lyngdoh is only 84cm tall and weighs 22lbs, about the size of a typical 1-2 year old toddler. His features and head circumference are that of a small child. He also has the mental capacity of a child that age, making him, quite literally, the worlds oldest baby. In fact, according to the Pediatrician who examined him, the only thing adult about Jerly Lyngdoh are his teeth. His parents still dress him in baby clothing.

Lyngdoh has a rare pituitary condition known as pan-hypo pituitarism, which causes limited secretion of growth hormones from the pituitary gland. His condition is the opposite of progeria, or advanced ageing.
