Acromicric dysplasia is an extremely rare inherited disorder characterized by abnormally short hands and feet, growth retardation and delayed bone maturation leading to short stature.[2] Most cases have occurred randomly for no apparent reason (sporadically). However, autosomal dominant inheritance has not been ruled out.

According to the disease database, Acromicric dysplasia is synonymous with Geleophysic dysplasia (or Geleophysic Dwarfism) and Focal mucopolysaccharidosis.


This condition has been associated with mutations in the Fibrillin 1 (FBN1) gene.[3]

Mutations in this gene have also been associated with stiff skin syndrome, Marfan syndrome and its variant Marfanoid–progeroid–lipodystrophy syndrome, autosomal dominant Weill-Marchesani syndrome, isolated ectopia lentis, MASS phenotype, and Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome.[4][5]
