Hi,

Thanks for the query.

I think you are talking about XXXXXXX Lorain Dwarfs.

1. XXXXXXX lorain dwarf syndrome-- In this condition there is decrease synthesis of somatomedin C ( a growth hormone in humans). This is also know as HYPOCELLULAR DWARF SYNDROME. Common in Africa.

There are others also such as:

2. Achondroplasia- Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by the presence of a faulty allele in a person's genome. It causes distortion of body proportion.

3. Growth hormone deficiency- Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a medical condition in which the body produces insufficient growth hormone.

4. Other causes of dwarfism include diastrophic dysplasia, pseudoachondroplasia, hypochondroplasia, Noonan syndrome, primordial dwarfism, XXXXXXX syndrome, osteogenesis imperfecta and hypothyroidism.

5. Mucopolysaccharidoses-- It is a storage disease, that causes the stunted growth.

6. Russell-Silver Syndrome-- It includes-Triangular face (Craniofacial disproportion)
Down turned corners of mouth
Incurved fifth digit (clinodactyly), and usually shorter digit than normal
Short birth length/ low birth weight
Scaphocephaly
Post natal growth retardation.

7. Lethal acrodysgenital dwarfism- It is an autosomal recessive disorder, it includes the lethality, occurrence of polydactyly, and the sexual ambiguity.

Hope this will help you and in case of any doubts, I am available for the follow ups.

Regards.
