  • Background/Aims: Untreated girls with Turner syndrome (TS) have growth failure, and adult height is, on average, 20 cm less than predicted height. Treatment with growth hormone (GH) is now standard of care. The objective of this study was to investigate the benefit of adding oxandrolone (Ox) to GH in a long-term, randomized, placebo (Pl)-controlled prospective trial to near adult height in TS.
