Growth hormone deficiency is an important cause of short stature in childhood. It is characterised by low growth velocity in childhood and is diagnosed by stimulation testing. Individuals with growth hormone deficiency may have other pituitary hormone deficits in addition to growth hormone deficiency. When multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies are present, abnormal pituitary anatomy, as visualised on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is a frequent finding. The classic triad (ectopic posterior… CONTINUE READING
