Eternal toddler

A 23-year-old Indian man has spent his life trapped inside the baby’s body being unable to walk or talk.

Neighbors call Manpreet Singh the ‘pint-sized’ man as he stopped growing physically and mentally after a year – leaving him as an eternal toddler.

Manpreet was born in 1995 but mysteriously stopped growing before he could walk and talk. Doctors assured his father Jagtar Singh, 50, that he would start growing again.

But that never happened and doctors have been left baffled as to the reason why as his brother Mangaldeep and sister Jaspreet have both physically and mentally developed.

Doctors believe the growth defect is due to a hormone deficiency but are unable to identify exactly what without an expensive medical investigation.

MK Bhadu, a medical officer at a state-run facility at Hisar, said: “The patient’s growth stopped due to some hormonal imbalance.

“A child begins to develop mentally and physically from the age of three. If his body is not developing, the parents should take him to a better medical facility and get him treated.”

Round the clock care

It’s not an easy thing to be parents of Manpreet as he requires round the clock care from his uncle Karanvir Singh, 45, and aunt Lakhwinder Kaur, 42, who carry him everywhere and dote on him.

Also, Manpreet is unable to maintain a conversation but he can laugh, cry, scream and communicate by gestures.

His Uncle Karanvir said: “Manpreet giggles like a toddler and seldom gets sad. It’s only when the dogs or any other animal makes a sound, he gets terrified and cries.

“He is a delightful child and gestures the guests with his hands to sit, and tries to befriend them.”

However, the family are worried about his future and have been consulting medical professionals to try and understand his condition.
