Slide 1 - Achondroplasia (dwarfism)
Slide 2 - Medical Achondroplasia is a dominant, autosomal mutation. One would inherit this condition if the parents carried the gene 80% of the cases, people with dwarfism have normal parents that simply acquired the gene over time. There is really only one genotype for this condition and it is heterozygous because if a fetus was homozygous dominant, the child would die shortly after birth. This disease has a prevalence of ~1: 25,000 A person with Achondroplasia has a 50% chance of passing the mutation on to their offspring, 25% chance of having a normal child, and a 25% chance of the child dying shortly after birth Achondroplasia is diagnosed with a prenatal ultrasound and the condition is diagnosed by looking at the skeletal structure, and a DNA test to detect if the child has both of the dominant chromosomes This condition’s symptoms are the following: Short stature Shortening of the limbs Large head and forehead Abnormal spinal curvature Bowlegged or knock knee deformities Frequent ear infections Sleep apnea
