Abstract

The linear growth of 8 patients with Turner’s syndrome during human growth hormone (GH) administration was documented. Mean growth velocity was significantly greater during GH treatment (4.9 ± 0.8 cm/year) than before treatment (3.3 ± 0.8 cm/year, p < 0.001). Growth velocity was related to dosage but not correlated with chronologic age, skeletal age or weight.
