Review article: Achondroplasia in a 8 Year Old Male Child: Report of a Rare case

Achondroplasia is considered as the commonest cause of dwarfism, which is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. It has a prevalence of 1 in 15,000 to 40,000 live births. This genetic disorder usually manifests at birth as a disproportionately enlarged head in comparison to the body, and a reduced size of arms and legs. Here, we report a case of an eight year male patient, with features of achondroplasia, who reported to us with a lack of eruption of upper front tooth since past 1 year.
