      Still, Achondroplasia was only ever mentioned as a possibility. We had read so much online about ultrasound measurements being wrong and were hopeful this was the case for us. We refused amniocentesis because it wouldn’t make any difference, and with all the ultrasounds and blood work throughout the entire pregnancy, I had had enough.   Achondroplasia is a growth disorder of the bones caused due to a mutation in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 gene. The mutation occurs during the early development of the fetus. Sometimes the disorder is inherited from parents wherein the disease is expressed in an autosomal dominant fashion.

    Achondroplasia is a genetic disorder that results in dwarfism. In those with the condition, the arms and legs are short, while the torso is typically of normal length. Those affected have an average adult height of centimetres (4 ft 4 in) for males and centimetres (4 ft) for females. Other features include an enlarged head and prominent cations: Ear infections, hyperlordosis, . A prenatal ultrasound revealed that Chael might have achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. X-rays taken after birth confirmed the diagnosis. X-rays taken after birth confirmed the diagnosis. Chael was also born () and diagnosed with kyphosis, which resulted in an extreme curvature of his spine and extreme bowing of his legs.

    Achondroplasia is the best described and most common form of the congenital short-limbed dwarfing conditions. Achondroplasia is apparent at birth and has a birth prevalence of 1 in 20 –30 live-born infants. Achondroplasia is inherited as an autosomal dominant condition, although 80% of cases occur sporadically as new events in their families.   Published Janu Last updated March 3, by Lauren Vavala. Because children with Achondroplasia (and other forms of dwarfism) grow differently than average height children, there are completely different Achondroplasia growth charts that the geneticists and pediatricians will be following. The arms and legs grow much slower, while.
