Abstract

Growth hormone deficiency may occur in isolation or with deficiencies of other pituitary hormones. Hypothalamic and pituitary development occurs during a time in embryonic development when other crucial organs are also evolving and growing. For this reason, growth hormone deficiency may be a component of a syndrome that involves multiple organs. This chapter will discuss the most common and best characterized clinical syndromes that have growth hormone deficiency as a major feature.
