madelungs deformity

I have madelungs deformity and am 4ft 11in. Does this mean I have darwfism in me automatically because of the deformity along with my height or leir weill syndrome?

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.
