Growth hormone treatment in girls with Turner's syndrome. A review of the literature.


Most girls with Turner's syndrome seemed to increase their growth rate during the first year of growth hormone treatment. The gain is rarely more than 3 cm/year. In 3 studies the combination of growth hormone and an anabolic steroid resulted in higher growth rates compared to those with each individual compound. The results of long-term treatment (more than one year) also appear to be positive. The impact of growth hormone therapy on final height has not yet been established, however.
