An A to Z glossary of disabilities

People with cartilage hair hypoplasia are born with a short stature and small limbs, known as dwarfism.

Those with CHH also have very fine and sparse hair and an abnormal cartilage. In some cases the condition affects their immune system leaving them open to infections which can cause a severe course of chicken pox.

The condition can also affect white blood cells which can cause anaemia.
