Abstract

Objective: To test the hypothesis that normalization of the growth hormone (GH) response to stimulation in patients with GH deficiency (GHD) and normal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the hypothalamic-pituitary area might occur earlier than at attainment of final height. Study design: Prepubertal children with short stature (21 boys and 12 girls; age, 5.2-10 years), in whom a diagnosis of GHD was based on a GH response
