[post_page_title]A genetic disorder[/post_page_title]
Dwarfism is a genetic disorder that affects a small percentage of people around the world. There’s more than just one cause for the condition, with dwarfism caused by things like achondroplasia and Turner syndrome.
These problems prevent a child from developing properly in the womb, leading them to grow differently once they’re born. Common characteristics of someone with dwarfism are short stature and a stocky build, with the person’s limbs either growing proportionately or disproportionately with the rest of their body.
