From left to right: Alfredo Ivan Torres Gil, 18 - Brenda Eduardo Torres, 32  and Joaquin Eduardo Torres Gil, 14 pictured at their home in Mexico City, Mexico on February 16, 2017. The three siblings have been diagnosed with Morquio syndrome. Morquio syndrome is a rare inherited birth defect that is estimated to occur in one of every 200,000 births. The disease may not be visible at birth; symptoms usually begin between ages 1 and 3. Morquio syndrome is a progressive disease, meaning symptoms get worse as a child grows.
