Growth in length, weight gain, and head circumference were recorded from 3 months to 4 years of age in 25 children with cystic fibrosis diagnosed by neonatal screening. Mean standard deviation (SD) scores at 3 months for length, weight, and head circumference were -0.78, -0.91, and -0.52 respectively. Over the first 2 years length SD scores showed a(More)
Monthly increments of length, weight gain, and head circumference were recorded from birth to 4 years of age in 52 children with cystic fibrosis. At birth the children showed stunting. Standard deviation (SD) scores at birth for height, weight, and head circumference were -1.24, -0.72, and -1.82 respectively. Over the first four years, length and weight SD(More)
