20 Years Old Toddler

20 Years Old Toddler

Brooke Greenberg is 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.

According to her parents, from age one to four, Brooke changed. She got a little bit bigger. But  from age four to five, she stopped growing.

Since then, Brooke's height and weight of 16 pounds and 20 inches have remained a constant. She wears diapers, is pushed in a stroller, gets fed through a feeding tube due to a too-small esophagus, and communicates like an infant would.

As per the doctors 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.
