While I was out this weekend I saw someone with a growth abnormality (or deformity if you prefer) that I had not seen before. It was a woman, and from the waist down she appeared to be completely normal (this includes her butt, legs, and feet). But her upper body was much shorter than normal; it appeared that her torso had been “crushed”. As a result, even though her legs were normal length, she was probably only 4’ - 4’6" tall.
I was walking behind her and was trying not to stare. There didn’t seem to be any issues with brain function (although her speech was a bit garbled), and there were definite issues with mobility of her arms and upper body.
I’m just curious what this might have been.
