Short Stature in Chronic Kidney Disease Treated with Growth Hormone and an Aromatase Inhibitor

Article, Report English OPEN
Mendley, Susan R.; Spyropoulos, Fotios; Counts, Debra R.;

We describe an alternative strategy for management of severe growth failure in a 14-year-old child who presented with advanced chronic kidney disease close to puberty. The patient was initially treated with growth hormone for a year until kidney transplantation, followe... View more
