Final results of treatment with human growth hormone

, : Final results of treatment with human growth hormone. Archives Francaises de Pediatrie 41(7): 477-482

The authors report the results of treatment with human growth hormone (hGH) (for 3 1/2 years to 11 3/4 years, mean: 5 years 4 months) in 34 children presenting with complete growth hormone deficiency and an average growth failure reaching 3.9 standard deviations (SD). Treatment was discontinued, after spontaneous or induced puberty, when bone age reached or was beyond 15 years in boys, and 13 years in girls. A partial correction was obtained in almost all cases. However, average height remained at -2.4 SD with respect to age and -1.75 with respect to bone age, reaching normal limits in only half of the patients. School and professional performances were not appreciably different from those which are observed in normal adolescents. Although the acceptance of the diagnosis and therapy was not always good, the medical support associated with the supervision of the treatment seems to have had a favourable psychological effect.
