A normal person becomes sexually active at the age of 15 years. But the recent case of a sexually developed baby has shocked everyone in the world. This unbelievable story of a 1-year-old anonymous toddler in Delhi, India has left everyone speechless and stunned.
Aman (changed name) is suffering from early puberty at this small age. Currently, this toddler is undergoing treatment in Max Super Specialty Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, Delhi.
Read on to know more about this rare disorder.
This sexually active baby is experiencing abnormal changes in his body with every passing day.
Sexual characteristics started developing in his body at the age of 6 months.
This 1-year-old baby has hair on his face and body due to which he started experiencing sexual appeal at this tender age itself.
Later they got scared to see the rapid sexual development in their toddler's body at the age of 1 year. His mom exclaimed, "We thought maybe he was just a big baby, so we did not take him to the doctor. But by the time he was one, it was apparent there was something wrong."
A 1-year-old kid should have 20 ng/dl of testosterone level in the body. Testosterone level in Aman's body was found to be 500-600 ng/dl which is equivalent to that of a 25-year-old boy.
One among 5000 kids in 10 years of age usually suffers from this disorder. Aman's case is of one in 1,00,000 toddlers diagnosed with puberty in the age group of 1 year.
Aman has injected medications daily to reduce the hormone level in his body. He is receiving special treatment to get rid of sexual desires and potential violence. Dr. Vaishakhi Rustagi, who is treating the toddler in Max Super Specialty Hospital explained- "It is a rare case that happens once in 10 odd years. Precocious puberty is traumatic for a child of his age – the baby can't express his feelings or understand what his happening to him."
It can also render the child dwarf for lifetime.
High levels of hormones in Aman's body made him so aggressive that his parents were unable to control him. Aman's parents are spending Rs.11,000 on his treatment every day.
