The Kenny-Caffey syndrome is characterized by extreme short stature, medullary stenosis of long bones, ophthalmologic abnormalities, and hypocalcemia /1,2/. Both familial and sporadic cases have been reported 13,4/. Impaired response of growth hormone (GH) to provocative testing has not been characteristic of these patients/5/. We now report a patient with the phenotypic characteristics of this syndrome who demonstrates an impaired GH response.
