Destined to Always Be Doll-Size: A look at little Thumbelina’s current life.

Many people are unaware of the symptoms of primary short stature caused by microcephalic osteodysplasia type II. In short, it is a complex form of dwarfism in which no further body growth takes place. In this case, there is no other option. It’s unfortunate that Abigail Lee was born with this type of genetic condition.

The image seems typical at first glance: a child sitting in a stroller, but in this case the stroller is a dollhouse toy.

Even though Abigail is two years old, her nine-pound weight is comparable to that of a newborn. According to doctors, the girl’s estimated height is 23 inches. The child’s health is excellent. She is growing, eating and playing but is not gaining weight.

Although there is currently no known treatment for this type of short stature, there is still hope that future scientific advances will be of benefit.
