209 Possible Causes for Lordosis, Short Stature in Children

  • Hypochondroplasia

    Early recognition of this disorder is possible from the abnormal body proportions with short limbs and lumbar lordosis without facial stigmata of achondroplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition to the obvious limb deformities of short stature and bowing, children with achondroplasia typically have frontal bossing (prominent forehead), midface hypoplasia[paleyinstitute.org] Hypochondroplasia (HCH) is an autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia characterized by short extremities, short stature and lumbar lordosis, usually exhibiting a phenotype similar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Achondroplasia

    Bony characteristics such as vertebral anomalies, lordosis and lumbar scoliosis, limited mouth opening and cervical spine instability make the administration of anesthesia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common reasons for short stature in children are familial short stature, a difference in the timing of growth (called constitutional growth delay) and, in girls,[gemssforschools.org] Radiographic examination showed typical findings of achondroplasia, such as disproportionately large skull, shortening of limb segments, and lumbar lordosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    […] her rhizomelic dwarfism became increasingly visible, and since completed 15 months of age, when she started to walk, the disease was complicated with genu varum, lumbar lordosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These children have short stature, with short arms and legs and short fingers.[socialstyrelsen.se] As the growth rate slows, the trunk appears long with lumbar lordosis and rhizomelic shortening of the limbs. Final adult height is 80-130cm.[web.archive.org]

  • Cartilage Hair Hypoplasia

    Increased ligamentous laxity was present in 95%, limited extension of the elbows in 92%, increased lumbar lordosis in 85%, thoracal deformity in 68%, genu varum in 63% and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a child with short stature since birth who was otherwise well, presenting at 2.8 years with progressive granulomatous skin lesions when diagnosed with severe[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lumbar lordosis was moderately increased. Thoracic deformity was observed in 82% of the patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hallermann Syndrome

    Children often appear petite and short in stature. Developmental delays are common but most individuals have normal or near-normal intelligence.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Children appear petite and are often short in stature. Scalp hair is thin, especially in the frontal and occipital areas, and the skin is atrophic.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Many children develop a short body trunk and a maximum stature of less than 4 feet.[en.wikipedia.org] Affected children may also have an abnormally large head (macrocephaly), a short neck and broad chest, delayed tooth eruption, progressive hearing loss, and enlargement of[rarediseases.org] Other symptoms include short stature, some skeletal irregularities, joint stiffness and restricted movement, and umbilical and/or inguinal hernias.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4A

    Accordingly, short stature, skeletal dysplasia, dental anomalies and corneal clouding are the hallmarks of MPS-IVA.[symptoma.com] Affected children may also have an abnormally large head (macrocephaly), a short neck and broad chest, delayed tooth eruption, progressive hearing loss, and enlargement of[rarediseases.org] By the age of three, children may have developed considerable deformities like spinal curvature, pectus carinatum, and knock-knee.[symptoma.com]

  • Diastrophic Dysplasia

    The average lordosis in the last radiograph was 17(degrees) (range 4 degrees -55(degrees)).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Diastrophic dysplasia (DD), an autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia, results in short-limbed short stature, generalized joint dysplasia, and spinal, hand, foot,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: Analysis of radiographic film for scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, and decompensation before surgery, after surgery, and at follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
