Summaries for Dwarfism

About this section


NIH Rare Diseases:43 Dwarfism is a condition that is characterized by short stature, usually resulting in an adult height of 4'10" or shorter. dwarfism can and most often does occur in families where both parents are of average height. it can be caused by any one of more than 300 conditions, most of which are genetic. the most common type, accounting for 70% of all cases of short stature, is called achondroplasia. other genetic conditions, kidney disease and problems with metabolism or hormones can also cause short stature. dwarfism itself is not a disease; however, there is a greater risk of some health problems. with proper medical care, most people with dwarfism have active lives and a normal life expectancy. last updated: 5/19/2011

MalaCards based summary: Dwarfism is related to isolated growth hormone deficiency and hypochondroplasia. An important gene associated with Dwarfism is RNU4ATAC (RNA, U4atac small nuclear (U12-dependent splicing)), and among its related pathways are Endochondral Ossification and G-Beta Gamma Signaling. The drugs growth hormone and somatrem and the compounds pyridostigmine and pegvisomant have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, kidney and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and reproductive system.

MedlinePlus:34 A dwarf is a person of short stature - under 4' 10" as an adult. more than 200 different conditions can cause dwarfism. a single type, called achondroplasia, causes about 70 percent of all dwarfism. achondroplasia is a genetic condition that affects about 1 in 15,000 to 1 in 40,000 people. it makes your arms and legs short in comparison to your head and trunk. other genetic conditions, kidney disease and problems with metabolism or hormones can also cause short stature. dwarfism itself is not a disease. however, there is a greater risk of some health problems. with proper medical care, most people with dwarfism have active lives and live as long as other people.
