Acromicric dysplasia

Acromicric dysplasia is a condition that is characterised by extreme short stature, short limbs, rigid joints, and distinctive facial features. Newborns with acromic dysplasia are of normal size, but stunted growth over time produces short stature. About 4 feet, 2 inches for women and 4 feet, 5 inches for men with this disorder, the average height of adults with this disorder is 4 feet, 2 inches for women and 4 feet, 5 inches for men. Those with affected individuals are likely to experience carpal tunnel syndrome, which is characterized by numbness, tingling, and a lack of hand and finger strength. In this condition, a misalignment of the hip joints can also occur. These skeletal and joint disorders can require medical attention, but most affected individuals have no restrictions in their daily activities. Children with acromic dysplasia may have a round face, sharply defined eyebrows, long eyelashes, a bulbous nose with upturned nostrils, a long nose with upturned nostrils, a long nose, narrow lips, and a small mouth with thin lips.
