Achondroplasia - Definition


Definition


Achondroplasia is a rare disease that is characterized by specific physical traits: short stature, short limbs and hands, hypertrophy of the head and a high forehead, and accentuated lumbar curvature. Persons afflicted with achondroplasia do not measure more than 130 cm in height. Though there are sometimes neurological complications, they are of normal intelligence. This is a genetic disease for which the treatment is, to this day, only orthopedic.
