Highlander Syndrome: People Who Don’t Age?

Are there people who don’t age?

Patients with Highlander Syndrome do not look like be aging.

As people grow older, their skin oxidizes and ages.

However, some people do not seem to age or grow years after they are born.

They are patients with a disease called “Highlander Syndrome”.

The main cause of this disease is that aging has stopped due to hormonal abnormalities.

They basically look younger than their age, but they seem to get older rapidly as they approach death.

Patients with this disease are extremely rare.

The existence of the disease itself is well known, but few people in the medical community have actually met patients.
