The 18-Year-Old Gamer Who Looks Like A Child | BORN DIFFERENT

AN 18-YEAR-OLD has a rare condition which makes him look and act like a child. Christopher Rea, from Newark, Delaware, suffers from an extremely rare form of dwarfism called Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 4, otherwise known as Morquio, which affects only 1 in 250,000 births worldwide. Symptoms include skeletal deformities, dwarfism, narrow airways, spinal instability and enlarged organs and, incredibly, Christopher has two younger sisters with the same condition. Despite his symptoms, which include being unable to walk since the age of 7, Christopher’s parents describe him as a funny character who loves playing computer games.
