Storyboard Text

  • Hi, Sir, you have achondroplasia known as dwarfism. The way it occurs is by a mutation happening in the FGFR3 gene which occurs in chromosome 4.
  • No, this condition can not be prevented because the cause is from unexpected mutations. So for the time being there is no cure for achondroplasia. 
  • The gene and chromosome that is affected is FGFR3 gene and chromosome 4. Some symptoms are short limbs, large head, unaligned teeth and curved lower spine.
  • It can affect males, females, children, teens and more and if you want to have kids they have a chance of having achondroplasia if you do. 
  • There is no treatment but one can do it surgically by correcting the shape of the spine, they can also make your bones go in the correct direction.
