Is it actually a form of dwarfism?!

Question: Is it actually a form of dwarfism!?
My husband's family has a hereditary "dwarfism"!. His grandfather, dad, one of his brothers, and one of his sisters all have short limbs for their torsos!. My hubby and his brother both sit about as tall as those who are 6'2"-6'4" ish, but because of their shortened limbs they are only about 5'5"!. I know that most short-limb dysplasia defines dwarfism as having an adult height of 4'10" or under!. So, is this a type of dwarfism, just misproportioned, or what!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

It's called Disproportionate dwarfism, it's when one or more parts of the body is average or above-average size, but others are smaller then average!.

It is more rare then proportionate dwarfism, but still exists!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
