Abstract

Growth failure is common in children with untreated HIV, although growth hormone (GH) deficiency is rare. Treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy usually results in resumption of normal growth. We report the cases of 2 children with growth failure despite stable full suppression of viremia who were found to be GH deficient.
