A THREE YEAR OLD IS THE WORLD TINIEST GIRL AT JUST 1.5 FEET.HER PERMANENT HEIGHT
With a cheeky smile and playful nature, little Liang Xiaoxiao acts just like any other child.
As she plays with other toddlers and kicks around a football, she doesn’t have a care in the world.
However, the three-year-old’s size compared to the other children she plays with clearly shows that all is not well.
It is believed the youngster is the world’s tiniest girl.
She was born with a weight of 1.05kg and a height of just 33cm. But three years on she is only 54 cm tall and weights just 2.5kg.
Doctors in Huaihua, China, believe that a genetic mutation has stopped the youngster from getting any bigger.
The mutation clearly hasn’t dented the love of her mother who proudly watches her child play at the Children’s Hospital of Hunan Province in Changsha, China.
