Abstract

Thirty two children (twenty one boys and eleven girls) whose ages ranged from 2.17 to 17.94 years were identified as having growth hormone deficiency. Of these, nineteen (fourteen boys and five girls) had idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, while in thirteen (seven boys and six girls) the growth hormone deficiency was due to cereral tumours either sui generis as in craniopharyngioma or idiopathic following operation and postoperative cranial irradiation.
