Achondroplasia - Diagnosis

How is achondroplasia diagnosed?

Achondroplasia is diagnosed after a full evaluation by a doctor familiar with the disorder. This involves a physical examination and radiological evaluation.

Genetic testing for a causative pathogenic (diseasecausing) variant in the FGFR3 gene can also be helpful to establish a diagnosis in some cases.
