Short stature in children

Rawan Ali Almutairi.

Abstract
Physicians consider the short stature as one of the most common causes of referral to pediatric endocrinology clinics. The initial evaluation of short stature should include a history, a physical examination, an accurate assessment of growth, calculation of the growth velocity and mid-parental height, and radiography to evaluate bone age. The recommendations for short stature management differ according to the level of growth hormone (GH), wherein the case of GH deficiency; the patient may receive markedly different recommendations.
