DESPITE being born with a rare form of Primordial Dwarfism that affects just over a dozen people worldwide, 3”6 Monica Zaring continues to defy all the odds. Monica, 30, is currently the oldest female in the world to be living with Saul-Wilson Syndrome – a condition that has baffled doctors for decades. Saul-Wilson Syndrome is an extremely rare skeletal disorder characterised by a significantly short stature, a pronounced forehead, hearing loss and microcephaly – the appearance of a smaller head. Six years ago, Monica, who resides in Louisville, Kentucky, provided a sample of her DNA to doctors who were working on a groundbreaking study of Saul-Wilson Syndrome at the National Institute of Health. And in the latter stages of 2017, Monica’s years of heartache and unanswered questions were finally resolved, with doctors successfully identifying the root cause of her rare dwarfism.
