textabstractIn the Netherlands, children who remain short after being born small for gestational age (SGA) are treated with growth hormone (GH). The clinical studies described in this thesis focused on treatment options in short children born SGA who came under medical attention around pubertal age. These children were treated with a GnRH analogue (GnRHa) for 2 years to postpone puberty. After 3 months of GnRHa treatment, the efficacy of this treatment was investigated by measuring the… CONTINUE READING
