Restricted growth, sometimes known as dwarfism, is a condition characterised by unusually short height. There are 2 main types of restricted growth: proportionate short stature (PSS) – a general lack of growth in the body, arms and legs.Disproportionate dwarfism is usually apparent at birth or early in infancy. Proportionate dwarfism may not be diagnosed until later in childhood or the teenage years if your child isn't growing at an expected rate.Achondroplasia is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, which means one copy of the altered gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the disorder. About 80 percent of people with achondroplasia have average-size parents; these cases result from new mutations in the FGFR3 gene. However, due to the jaw structure and small stature, teeth are sometimes larger than the jaw can support. Patients with achondroplasia are somewhat prone to gingivitis and periodontal disease due to the makeup of the bone structure as well as the mouth breathing tendency.

Currently, there is no cure for dwarfism. “These results describe a new approach for restoring bone growth and suggest that sFGFR3 could be a potential therapy for children with achondroplasia and related disorders,” researchers concluded in their study, published in the top journal Science.
