Abstract

Evaluation of a child's growth is one of the most important aspects of the general pediatric visit. Concerns about abnormal growth are the leading reasons general pediatricians refer patients to a pediatric endocrinologist. There is wide variation in normal growth patterns and an even greater variety of conditions that manifest with growth abnormalities. Here, we review patterns of normal growth in the pediatric and adolescent populations. We then review abnormal patterns of growth that require further evaluation and possible treatment.
