Among all patients with short stature, the examination revealed the normal content of growth hormone (basal and stimulated levels) and reduced or normal levels of insulin-like growth factor-I in the majority, which automatically excludes these patients from a cohort of growth hormone deficiency. The vast majority of these patients had a diagnosis of idiopathic short stature; sometimes, there were isolated cases of a syndrome of biologically inactive growth hormone. The article discusses the diagnostic differences between these states and therapeutic interventions, by predicting the effectiveness of treatment.
