Experts believe that his hormones secretion glands may have been damaged. “Jerly’s infantile features are remarkable, and the only thing he shares with an adult are his teeth. We think this is a case of pan-hypo pituitarism leading to poor secretion of growth hormones from the pituitary gland. He is a genuine rarity,” said pediatrician Dr J. Ryndong.
