Read the passage carefully.
Dwarfism describes an usually short stature that can arise from a variety of genetic and other conditions. Many types of dwarfism are are conditions marked by abnormal bone growth. They are divided into two types: short-trunk and short-limb dysplasias.
People with short-trunk dysplasia have a shortened trunk with relatively longer limbs, whereas those with short-limb dysplasia have a near-normal size trunk but small arms and legs. Both types cause disproportionate short stature, which means that the parts of the body are not in proportion to one another: some parts of the body are not in proportion to one another: some parts are approximately average size, whereas others are significantly shorter.
In the past, the terms “dwarfism” and “dwarf” were only used to refer to these cases of disproportionate short stature. The term “midget” was usually applied to conditions of proportionate short stature, in which all parts of the body match in size. However, the word “midget” now is considered offensive by many people of short stature and has fallen into disuse.
