Overview

The symptoms of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) usually develop in the first decade of life, complications of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) include progressive atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction. Prognosis is generally poor, in patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS).

Natural History, Complications, and Prognosis

Natural History

  • The symptoms of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) usually develop in the first decade of life, and start with symptoms as follows:[1][2]
    • Failure to thrive
    • Loss of subcutaneous fat
    • Poor weight gain
      • Weight increase of only 0.44 kg/year
    • Short stature
      • Decreased linear weight gain
    • Alopecia

Complications

  • Common complications of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) include:[3][4][5]
    • Progressive atherosclerosis
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
    • Stroke
    • Exposure keratopathy
    • Conductive hearing loss

Prognosis

  • Prognosis is generally poor, in patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS).[6]
  • The presence of progressive atherosclerosis is associated with a particularly poor prognosis among patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS).
  • The average lifespan of patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is about 15 years.[7][8]
