Adult growth hormone defeciency

R Berardi, P Balestri, D Tomaccini, P Borgogni, R Mattei
A deficiency of growth hormone (GH) was detected in a male child with "empty sella syndrome" (ESS). Association between ESS and defeciences of pituitary hormones has been previously reported in adult subjects. It seems likely that GH deficiency is be related to ESS in the case described in this paper. An appropriate evaluation of the endocrine system seems suitable in this condition, since ESS in childhood is not to be regarded only from neuroradiologic point of view.
