"Toddler" is 20 Years Old, and Forever Young, Due to Baffling Medical Condition

"Brooke Greenberg may be 20 years old, but she remains forever trapped inside the body and mind of a toddler, due to a mystery medical condition that has baffled medical experts for years . . . Doctors have told Melanie and Howard, who live in Maryland, that there is no other known case like Brooke's in the world. And at least one medical expert believes that Brooke's condition could hold the key to the fountain of youth."

This is extremely curious.  I'm glad that various scientists are trying to understand what's going on here.

I did a little bit of research on this and it looks like the condition is known as "Syndrome X," and while rare, this girl is not the only one in the world with it, as reported.  Two others who have it besides Brooke Greenberg are Gabrielle Williams of Montana and Nicky Freeman of Australia (born 1970) (a forty-year-old man who looks like a boy).
