The gene for achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism, was discovered in 1994.Achondroplasia is caused by a gene mutation that is the same in 98% of the cases.

There are not such treatments available for people with disproportionate short stature.

Although achondroplasia accounts for perhaps 70 percent of all cases of dwarfism, there are over 200 diagnosed types, and there are some individuals with dwarfism who never receive a definitive diagnosis and/or have a condition that is unique to themselves or their family.

There's a 50 percent chance the child will inherit one dwarfism gene and one non-dwarfism gene and thus have achondroplasia, just like her or his parents.

And there is a 25 percent chance the child will inherit both dwarfism genes, a condition known a double-dominant syndrome, and which invariably ends in death at birth or shortly thereafter.

LPA is working to make common activities easily reachable by people with dwarfism - including gas pumps, pay phones, and ATM's.

Dwarfism is a recognized condition under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

LPA Events Be sure to check your local chapter and district websites for events! What is LPA's position on the implications of these discoveries in genetics? What special considerations regarding anesthesia should be taken into account?

For a list of upcoming District Regional Events, please see Calendar above. We are parents of a newborn child who has been diagnosed with achondroplasia, and our pediatrician doesn't know anything about it. We have heard that very young achondroplastic children can run into a variety of complications. Does Little People of America have any special resources for parents? Little People of America (LPA) defines dwarfism as a medical or genetic condition that usually results in an adult height of 4'10" or shorter, among both men and women, although in some cases a person with a dwarfing condition may be slightly taller than that.

Opinions vary within the dwarf community about whether or not this term applies to us.

Certainly many short-statured people could be considered disabled as a result of conditions, mainly orthopedic, related to their type of dwarfism.

LPA believes strongly that prospective parents who become familiar with the full, productive lives led by little people will not likely choose termination. The odds vary with diagnosis, but a person with achondroplasia has one dwarfism gene and one "average-size" gene.
