What is dwarfism due to?

Inadequate function of the pituitary gland can lead to insufficient production of growth hormone during body development. This situation leads to a disorder known as pituitary dwarfism. Those affected are extremely short in stature, but retain normal body proportions.

There are, however, other forms of dwarfism in which the bones or cartilage grow abnormally and cause severe deformities. This is the case of osteochondrodysplasias, a group of inherited disorders in which the skeleton has poor development. Some forms of this pathology cause short stature. Of the different types of dwarfism, achondroplasia, with very short limbs, is the most common.
