Video: Cute little girl just one of 20 people in the world suffering from rare disease

Have your say

A cute seven-year-old girl is one of just 20 people in the WORLD suffering from a disease which is so rare that it took doctors THREE years to diagnose her.

Matilda Hatton suffers from Sensenbrenner Syndrome which causes her to have morphic facial features and shorter limbs. The youngster grows at a slower rate than other children because of the ultra-rare multi-system disorder. She was born with just 30 per cent kidney functions and her liver was also abnormal. Incredibly, the disease is so rare that Matilda wasn’t diagnosed until she was three-years-old because doctors were baffled by the symptoms.
