Short stature is a common cause for addressing the endocrinologist. Growth hormone deficiency is estimated to occur in 1:4000 to 1:10,000 of small stature cases . Identifying and treating these children is of high importance given the psycho-social implication of small stature. I present the case of a male teenager ages 15 years 10 months old who responded well to treatment, achieving the target genetic stature.
