Consecutive day LHRH stimulation by continuous infusion has been used to evaluate pituitary reserve. Different responses on the 2 days were not present among non‐pubertal hypopituitary patients, pubertal growth hormone deficient patients or adult males. However, patients with constitutionally delayed puberty demonstrated a greater serum LH response on day 1 than day 2. Urinary LH responses suggest a similar but not statistically significant pattern. This response may be a normal phenomenon of puberty or may represent part of the reason for constitutionally delayed puberty.
