Los Angeles - American Horror Story star Rose Siggins has died.

The 43-year-old actress - who played Legless Suzi in America Horror Story: Freak Show - passed away after contracting an infection following kidney stone surgery, TMZ reports.

She passed away on Saturday in a hospital in Denver.

Rose was born with the condition sacral agenesis (or hypoplasia of the sacrum), a congenital disorder in which there is abnormal foetal development of the lower spine.

The condition caused her to suffer with kidney and pancreas problems throughout her life.

Rose is survived by her two children and a GoFundMe account has been set up to help them.

A message on the fundraising page reads: ''I'm sad to report that Rose has passed away this morning around 7:30. All funds raised will now be directed to final expenses and the continuing support of her children.

''I suppose Elsa Mars said it best: 'The death of a beloved monster is always a sorrow, but never a surprise. If oddly-formed organs or a random physical anomaly doesn't claim them, then it is at the sheer density of their blaze. A carny's life burns and brighter than most. It is bound to extinguish sooner.'''
