How to use "Pachygyria" in context?
Pachygyria, also known as acrogyria and sarcopenia, is a rare medical condition that results in the body's inability to create new skin and bone. The disorder is caused by a shortage of collagen, the connective tissue that makes up the skin, bones and other body parts. The affected person typically experiences thin skin with fragile bones that may fracture easily. Pachygyria is also associated with a decrease in muscle mass and a decreased ability to burn calories. There is no known cure for pachygyria, and the disease is typically progressive and fatal.
