Survey about achondroplasia
We have designed a questionnaire with the purpose to better know the population connected to achondroplasia.
The questionnaire is optional and anonymous. The data obtained will be used for statistical purposes and to better understand the natural history of achondroplasia. Please consider answering.
If you would like to take the survey later, you can click on the link at the top "Register at BA"

This paper is a case study about a 3 month old baby who was born healthy, but developed obstructive and central sleep apnea and a CT scan revealed compression of the foramen magnum. 

The authors not only describe this case as they talk about some of the complications associated with achondroplasia, as well as their incidences. They also give a recommendation on when sleep studies should start being performed, as these complications resolved with maturity, at 6 months of age.

This small case study does not have an abstract, but it can be consulted for free here:
