17 Year Old Girl With A Rare Disease Lives In A Baby’s Body
It’s difficult to imagine what it would feel like to be stuck in a baby’s body for 17 years. But that’s exactly what Pei Shan Teo from Singapore has had to live with. When Pei Shan was born, doctors found that her limbs were much shorter than that of a normal baby. After repeated examinations, she remains officially undiagnosed although her medical charts cite Mucopolysaccharidosis Type III, a congenital disorder affecting the bones, organs and central nervous system. Whether from this disease or something unknown, Pei Shan is unique: She doesn’t grow like other children. Rather, her mind has been imprisoned in a body which has been frozen in time.
