Scientists find gene for dwarfism in Pennsylvania Amish: (The Age)
Researchers traced 50 cases of Ellis-Van Creveld in Lancaster County to a couple who emigrated to eastern Pennsylvania in 1744.
Ellis-Van Creveld was first described by doctors in 1940. It is most commonly seen in Old Order Amish, whose religious beliefs require them to live apart from modern society, and other closed cultures that intermarry.
