Bo Rakching, 10, from Cambodia looks like an old woman because of a rare disease, Mirror reported

According to the source, the exact diagnosis is unknown, since Bo’s loved ones never sought medical advice, believing that the cause of all the troubles was bad karma. Presumably, the girl suffers from lipodystrophy, which is characterized by pathology of adipose tissue.

Due to her unusual appearance, Bo often comes across offensive comments about her. Even her brothers and sisters call a grandmother.

“I want the pretty face. I want to have surgery. The other children call me 'old folk’,” she said.
