Many individuals aren’t familiar with the term microcephalic osteodysplastic type II primary dwarfism. To put it plainly, it’s an intricate form of dwarfism where the body doesn’t undergo any growth. In this context, there are no alternatives.
Abigail Lee was regrettably afflicted with such a genetic disorder at birth.
At first sight, the scene seems quite normal – a child is seated in a pushchair, except that in this instance, the pushchair is a toy, intended for dolls.
Abigail is now 2 years old, yet her weight is nearly identical to that of a newborn – just 9 lb.
Doctors predict that the young girl will reach a height of approximately 23 inches. The child is absolutely healthy, she consumes food regularly, engages in play and is progressing in her development, but she doesn’t increase in size.
Regrettably, current medical science has not found a cure for this variant of dwarfism, but we remain hopeful that future scientific advancements may provide a solution.
Abigail should be able to pursue education and lead a lengthy and fulfilling life. We hope that she will experience happiness and self-assuredness.
