Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome

I remember seeing kids with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome on Maury Povich or some other lame talk show a long time ago. The afflicted individuals age prematurely and therefore provide insight into the aging process in general. PLoS has a great summary of some of the knowledge that has been gained into aging from the single gene mutation that is associated with the disease. Apparently it may all come down to accumulation and defective repair of DNA damage. The pic is of a mouse model of the disease. If you don't know already what patients with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome look like check out the PLoS link.
