  • Skeletal dysplasias comprise a diverse group of conditions that usually compromise both linear growth and body proportions. It is of theoretical interest to evaluate the effect of GH treatment on linear growth, body proportion and final height in the different skeletal dysplasias. Reported experience of GH treatment in short children with skeletal dysplasia is sparse and often limited to short treatment periods and knowledge of its effects on final height and body proportion is generally… CONTINUE READING
