Parents Could Not Figure Out What Was Wrong With Her Then This Doctor Broke The Tragic News

Meet Brooke Megan Greenberg, an American who has remained physically and cognitively similar to a toddler, despite her increasing age.

Brooke was born on January 8, 1993, to parents Howard and Melanie Greenberg. She was delivered by Caesarean section, one month before her due date due to “intermittent growth”, weighing just four pounds (1.8 kg). She was born with anterior hip dislocation, a condition that caused her legs to be swiveled upward toward her shoulders; it was corrected surgically. Otherwise, Brooke appeared to be a normal infant

Over several years, the Greenbergs visited many specialists, looking for an explanation for their daughter’s strange condition, yet there was no diagnosis of any known genetic syndrome or chromosomal abnormality. In 2001, when Dateline documented Brooke, she was still the size of a six-month-old infant, weighing just 13 lb (5.9 kg) at 30 inches (76 cm) tall. The family still had no explanation. Brooke’s mother Melanie said, “They [the specialists] just said she’ll catch up. Then we went to the nutritionist, the endocrinologist. We tried the growth hormone…”. The growth hormone treatment had no effect. Howard, Brooke’s father, said, “I mean, she did not put on an ounce, or she did not grow an inch… That’s when I knew there was a problem.” After the growth hormone administration failed, the doctors, unable to diagnose a known condition, named her condition Syndrome X.
