Hi,
How are you? Madelung's deformity usually presents with malformed wrists and wrist bones and short stature. It is associated with Léri-Weill dyschondrosteosis.   Both of this condition are linked with a mutation on the pseudoautosomal region.
Madelung deformity is associated with mesomelic dwarfism and a mutation on the X chromosome.  This explains why you have short stature.  Take care and best regards.
