Primordial dwarfism is a form of dwarfism that results in a smaller body size, in all stages of life, beginning before birth. Primordial dwarfism is a diagnostic category including specific types of dwarfism, in which individuals are extremely small for their age, even as a fetus. Most individuals with primordial dwarfism are not diagnosed until they are about 3–5 years old.
Professional doctors diagnose the fetus as being small for his age, or as having growth disability when an ultrasound is conducted. The people with primordial dwarfism are born with very low birth weights. After birth, growth continues at a much slower rate, leaving individuals with primordial dwarfism.
Most cases of short stature are caused by skeletal or endocrine disorders. Some sources estimate that there are only 100 individuals in the world with the disorder. One of the examples of this illnes is Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley she is fourteen years old and she was born in 2003. She has two brothers, a mother and a father.
We choose this illness because we saw it in a video from Youtube and we were interested.
