Abstract

When the disease state improves during penicillamine therapy, resumption of growth occurs; if activity persists despite therapy, the expected fall-off in growth due to active Still's disease continues. Penicillamine does not interfere with the growth spurt after withdrawal of corticosteroid therapy or with the maintained slow growth during alternate-day steroid therapy.
