Little girl won't grow


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea what's wrong with this little girl? As a father this would turn me into an insomniac for life


Meet Suraya Brown – the little girl who is baffling doctors by refusing to grow.

The brown-eyed youngster is now 14-months-old and should weigh at least 20lb. Yet she is still the size of a newborn baby, tipping the scales at just over 7lb and a mere 19in.

Reminds me of this show TLC or Discovery Health runs, I think it's called "The World's Tiniest People". Anyway, here's info on two of the kids featured:


Bridgette and Brad have Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II


Bridgette was born 06/09/1989

She was 800 grams (1 pound and 12 ounces)

Height 12 1/2 inches long

She is now 17 years of age.

She is 28 inches tall and weighs 19 pounds.

Her 20 month old niece is already bigger than Bridgette.

Not saying this is related at all...BUT, my son grew only 1/4 of a inch between his 3rd and 4th Bday...

Obviously we were really worried as he went from the 50th percentile down to the 3 percentage.

But since then he has had normal growth rate and is now about the 7th percentile (age 7). Dr's say all is normal, and that he will most likely either catch up, or grow a little longer then others....

Just one year his body decided not to grow....
