Both sisters have Achondroplasia dwarfism. The word achondroplasia literally means “without cartilage formation.” The disorder equally affects females and males.
According to Columbia University Medical Center, Achondroplasia dwarfism occurs in about 1 in 25,000 live births.
The average height of adult females with the disorder is about 4 feet, 1 inch (or 49 inches). The average height of adult males with the disorder is about 4 feet, 4 inches (or 52 inches).
Achondroplasia dwarfism is the most common type of disproportionate dwarfism. Individuals with the disorder are short in stature with short limbs and a normal-sized torso.
According to the data, if both parents have Achondroplasia dwarfism, the baby’s chances of being affected increase to 75 percent. If one parent has the disorder, the baby has a 50 percent chance of inheriting Achondroplasia dwarfism.
The most common symptoms of the disorder include the following:
- delayed developmental milestones like walking;
- shortened legs and arms, with the upper thighs and arms more shortened than the lower legs and forearms;
- normal intelligence;
- frequent middle ear infections that may lead to hearing loss;
- large head size with a flattened nasal bridge and prominent forehead;
- loose joints;
- poor muscle tone;
- misaligned or crowded teeth;
- extra space between the ring and middle fingers;
- curved lower spine, that may lead to the development of a small hump near the shoulders;
- flat feet that are broad and short;
- bowed lower legs;
- small vertebral canals which may lead to spinal cord compression in adolescence.
