Likelihood of persistent GH deficiency into late adolescence: relationship to the presence of an ectopic or normally sited posterior pituitary gland.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The presence of an ectopic posterior pituitary gland (EPP) in childhood is associated with isolated GH deficiency (IGHD) and multiple pituitary hormone deficiency. GHD in late adolescence has been defined as a peak GH level <5 microg/l. The aim of this study was to identify the likelihood of persistent GHD in late adolescence in patients with an… (More)
