This study was designed to determine the intrafamilial effect of SHOX haploinsufficiency on stature, by comparing the growth and phenotype of 26 SHOX haploinsufficient individuals with 45 relatives and population standards. It confirmed that SHOX haploinsufficiency leads to growth restriction from birth to final height. Compared to unaffected siblings, the SHOX haploinsufficient cohort was 2.14 SDS (3.8 cm) shorter at birth and 2.1 SDS shorter through childhood. At final height females were 2.4… CONTINUE READING
