Progeria (pronunciation: /proʊˈdʒɪəriə/[1][2]) (Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome,[3][4] HGPS, progeria syndrome[4]) is an extremely rare genetic disorder wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age.


Progeria is one of several progeroid syndromes. The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" (πρό), meaning "before" or "premature", and "gēras" (γῆρας), meaning "old age". The disorder has a very low incidence rate, occurring in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births.[5] Those born with progeria typically live to their mid teens to early twenties.[6][7] It is a genetic condition that occurs as a new mutation, and is rarely inherited, as patients usually do not live to reproduce.

Although the term progeria applies strictly speaking to all diseases characterized by premature aging symptoms, and is often used as such, it is often applied specifically in reference to Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS).

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule, the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.[1] Management consultant Joseph M. Juran suggested the principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who, while at the University of Lausanne in 1896, published his first paper "Cours d'économie politique.

" Essentially, Pareto showed that approximately 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; Pareto developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas[citation needed]. It is a common rule of thumb in business; e.g., "80% of your sales come from 20% of your clients. " Work Less and Do More by Applying the Pareto Principle to Your Task List.
