Physical Examination

Signs and symptoms of psychogenic dwarfism vary greatly. Because these disorders affect overall growth, many of them result in poor development in one or more body systems.

  • Short stature: Short arms and legs, with particularly short upper arms and upper legs. short fingers, often with a wide separation between the middle and ring fingers.
  • Weight that is inappropriate for the height
  • Immature bone age, an adult height around 4 feet (about 122 centimeters)
  • Appearance and measurements: The appearance of your child may assist your pediatrician in making a diagnosis. Further, a measurement of height, weight and head circumference is important for evaluating the growth and development of the child. The chart with your child's data plotted by the pediatrician may identify abnormal growth and expect the growth in the future.
  • Evaluation of child's growth and develpment environment: As we know, an environment with constant and extreme stress is the cause of psychogenic dwarfism for children. It is very important to take the history of the child's growth and develpment environment, and assess the child's emotional condition.
