Growth is a fundamental process of childhood that is followed longitudinally by primary care. Poor growth velocity warrants an evaluation to identify an underlying pathology, whether endocrine or non-endocrine, whereas short stature refers to height below the normal spectrum of the population. You will learn more about common pathologies that may present with poor growth and contrast them with genetic mechanisms that contribute to variation in the population. Growth hormone—which was traditionally restricted to use in those with growth hormone deficiency—is the main intervention available to increase final adult height. As it commonly has efficacy to increase stature outside of the setting of growth hormone deficiency, the number of FDA-approved indications for its use have expanded over the past decades. The faculty in this lecture will also discuss considerations by pediatric endocrinologists in the prescription of growth hormone.
