In one of the rarest cases of medical anomalies – Precocious Puberty – a Delhi infant is showing biological symptoms of an adult. The child is not only more muscular than what a normal kid should be of his age, but also got matured genital organ and pubic hair growth.
The kid, ages 1 and half year old, has shocking 500 to 600 testosterone level instead of normal 20-nanogram per deciliter (ng/dl); similar to a young man of 25-year.
Doctors said that the baby has a same sexual urges that any adult person has but obviously the kid is too small to understand the same.
This Delhi toddler has a developed brain like that of a 12-year-old teen.
Doctors refer to this case as hormonal dysfunction and are treating the kid through hormone therapy.
This medical condition is known as ‘precocious puberty’ and affects 1 in 100,000 children. Dr. Vaishakhi Rustagi who is supervising the case at Max Super Specialty Hospital Delhi, opined that precocious puberty is traumatic for a child of this age and makes them more violent. It can also affect girl child in some cases in the age-group of 8 to 10 years. Abnormal growth in kids can be also be found in Progeria or Benjamin Button disease which leads to untimely death of kids.
The first thing that the kid’s parents notice was the kid’s height which was much taller than other kid of his age-group.
When they found abnormal development in the infant’s penis size, which measures as much as a matured boy, tensed family parents took him to hospital, where he was diagnosed with precocious puberty and is being given hormone dose every month to cure the same.
The baby is stated to be in stable condition. We at social chumbak prays that baby lead to a normal and healthy life!!
