World's Shortest Girl

Jyoti's condition is one of the most common types of genetic dwarfism called achondroplasia, in which the fibroblast growth factor receptor gene 3 (FGFR3) is impaired, impeding the normal cartilage formation.

Jyoti is 15 years old but weighs only 11 lb (5 kg) and 1ft 11 in (58 cm) tall. Jyoti attends the local high school, in Nagpur, Maharashtra (central India), where she has her own specially made miniature desk. Her parents were unaware of their daughter’s condition until some time after her birth.

Jyoti is like any other teenager: her favorite activities are listening to pop music, watching DVDs and wearing fashionable dresses, and like any Indian girl, her big dream is to become a Bollywood actress.

A little girl with a big dream.
