Rare Genetic Disorder

Okay, I've exhausted all possible variations of "rare genetic disorder/birth defect that causes child to self destruct" imaginable.

A long time ago, a friend told me about the only genetic disorder she'd consider aborting a child for, though I can't remember the name of the disorder or who it was who told me about it.

If memory serves, the child is born self-destructive (or even self-cannibalizing) and has to be restrained from hurting itself until it inevitably dies.

Now my question: Is there really such a disorder, and if so, what is it called?
