The pediatric patient with a growth problem should be evaluated by a clinician with a broad understanding of the multiple factors that influence growth. Intelligent use of diagnostic procedures, new and old, will increase the diagnostic accuracy of the examining physician.
This is the thesis of Dr. Kaplan's monograph. His review of pertinent literature is good. The clinician not working intimately with endocrinologic procedures will find the descriptions of principles and practices of recently devised methods for evaluating pituitary function useful. The author's particular interest in human growth hormone makes the material presented that relates to this subject particularly meaningful.
