Abstract

Considerations about the diagnosis of idiopathic isolated growth hormone deficiency The diagnosis of idiopathic isolated growth hormone deficiency is the most frequent indication for the replacement therapy with growth hormone. However, clinical and laboratory data strongly argue against the real existence of this condition. A comprehensive and critical diagnostic approach based on clinical, laboratory and radiological evidence, is required to avoid to start chronic, useless, costly and potentially risky therapies.
