19 Possible Causes for Arm Span : Height Ratio Increased

  • Marfan Syndrome

    , and increased arm span-height ratio (1 point), and 1 point each for the following: scoliosis or thoracolumbar kyphosis, reduced elbow extension, three of five facial features[clinicaladvisor.com] Typically, a person's arm span should be less than their body height; an increased arm span to body height ratio of 1.05 is considered a positive sign for Marfan syndrome.[physio-pedia.com] The extremities are disproportionately long for the size of the trunk (dolichostenomelia), leading to an increase in the arm span-to-height ratio and a decrease in the upper-to-lower[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Dissection

    Arachnodactyly is observed in about one third of LDS patients, but true dolichostenomelia, leading to an increase in arm-span-to-height ratio, is far less frequently observed[dx.doi.org]

  • Sotos Syndrome

    The de Boer et al [2005] study of auxologic data supports that of Agwu et al [1999] and shows that individuals with an NSD1 pathogenic variant have an increased arm span/height[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ratio, decreased sitting/standing height ratio, and increased hand length.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aromatase excess syndrome

    Pes planus, spine instability and spondylolisthesis are recurrent findings in this syndrome. 6 Dolichostenomelia (long limbs, leading to an increase in the arm span-to-height[samj.org.za] ratio and a decrease in the upper-to-lower segment ratio) is less common in this syndrome. 9 3.[samj.org.za]

  • Pyknodysostosis

    The patient height was 140 cm, upper limb to lower limb ratio was – 65/81, sitting height – 76 cm, weight – 42 kg, and arm span was – 138.4 cm.[ispub.com] Wing span increased to reach near-normal values, indicating a parallel lengthening of arms and forearms.[dx.doi.org] The patient’s X-rays showed increased bone density and osteolysis of distal phalanges. Lumbar spine X-rays showed reduced inter-vertebral spaces.[ispub.com]

  • XXXXY Syndrome

    However, other findings, such as gynecomastia, delayed puberty, sparse body and pubic hair, micropenis, tall stature, increased arm span to height ratio, learning disabilities[scielo.br] […] aneuploidies (48,XXXY, 48,XXYY, 49,XXXXY) have already been described. 2 The main clinical findings, present in almost all individuals with KS, are small testes, azoospermia and increased[scielo.br]

  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome with Periventricular Heterotopia

    Arachnodactyly is observed in about one third of LDS patients, but true dolichostenomelia, leading to an increase in arm-span-to-height ratio, is far less frequently observed[annalscts.com]

  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

    Arachnodactyly is observed in about one third of LDS patients, but true dolichostenomelia, leading to an increase in arm-span-to-height ratio, is far less frequently observed[annalscts.com]

  • Spondylo-Ocular Syndrome

    Arachnodactyly is observed in about one third of LDS patients, but true dolichostenomelia, leading to an increase in arm-span-to-height ratio, is far less frequently observed[annalscts.com]
