Correlation between pituitary growth hormone reserve and degree of growth failure in children with short stature


The correlation between a releasable pituitary growth hormone (GH) pool and degree of growth failure was examined in 30 children with GH deficiency (group I) and 19 children with normal short stature (group II).
