Abstract:

A must-see for parents and doctors as well as for medical students, this program comes to grips with the controversial topic of human growth hormone therapy. Five case studies shed light on a variety of related topics, including the role of the pituitary gland and genes in growth, diagnostics such as bone age X-rays and growth hormone provocative testing, treatment modalities and side effects, and applications of growth hormone to cases of renal failure and HIV infection. The importance of early detection of growth problems at routine well-baby checkups and periodic follow-up examinations of school-age children is emphasized.
