chondrodystrophy

A nonspecific term for any disturbance in chondrogenesis, which occurs primarily in the long bones and results in arrested growth and short stature (”dwarfism”). Because there are more than 100 specific types of skeletal dysplasia, the term chondrodystrophy lacks full meaning without adjectival modifiers that provide greater detail about the condition being assessed or addressed.
