Rawan Ali Almutairi.

Abstract
Physicians consider the short stature as one of the most common causes of referral to pediatric endocrinology clinics. The initial evaluation of short stature should include a history, a physical examination, an accurate assessment of growth, calculation of the growth velocity and mid-parental height, and radiography to evaluate bone age. The recommendations for short stature management differ according to the level of growth hormone (GH), wherein the case of GH deficiency; the patient may receive markedly different recommendations.

Key words: Short Stature, Growth Hormone, Growth Velocity, SHOX, Idiopathic Short Stature.
