Benjamin Button In Real Life?  13 Years Old Boy In A 3 Years Old Body.

In the case of Angus Palmes, a British boy who stop growing when he was just 3 years old. He is now 13 years old and has a body of a toddler. His conditions is so rare that it doesn't even has a name. But his parents called his condition a "Happy Syndrome" since he always looks happy. 


Angus Palmes, 13 weighs just 2st and 2lbs.

After struggling to get a diagnosis, doctors realized that he had a chromosome abnormality, with doctors calling his unique condition a 'personal syndrome' because he's the only person in the world battling it.

Angus communicates by wiggling his thumb and fingers and is able to walk while holding his mother's hand. 


Doctors told Tandy her baby was fine and it wasn't until after he was born that he began to be recognised as a baby with additional needs. 

Tandy said: 'When a child's born they do the regular tests on them and he didn't respond accordingly so he was taken into special care. We were going to be released after 10 days and unfortunately he had a seizure and I think we got home after about two and half weeks. 

'We had no idea there was anything wrong, although they had their suspicions. So they basically took us in an ambulance and we went to one of the Manchester hospitals and they did some genetic tests. 

'Three weeks after that they were able to tell me that they'd found this unique chromosome abnormality and they found it by accident.'

Angus communicates by wiggling his thumb and fingers.


'He's never going to be able to live an independent life so he's always going to be dependent on me but we just sort of work it out and get it along,' she explained. 

The youngster, who stopped growing when he was three, beat meningitis at the age of two and recently had a series of surgeries to tackle a problem in his digestive system.

Tandy estimates that her son has gone under the knife more than 40 times in his short life - including regular injections of botox to stop him from drooling.

But despite running the gauntlet of people staring in the street, his mother is determined for Angus to live as positive a life as possible.
