She was perfectly normal at birth and grew until 5 years old; since then she has grown broader, but very little taller. Examination. —On examination the patient was found to be 41 inches in height. The head, face and neck were normal and the intelligence above the average. The trunk was small, but not especially deformed. From the spine of the seventh cervical vertebra to the tip of the coccyx measured 20½ inches. The extremities were markedly short, stumpy and deformed.
