Dr. Eugene Braunwald: The patient whose records form the basis of this conference taught a good deal to those of us who were involved in his care, and for this reason his case was selected for this presentation.
He was a 13-year-old colored male who was the product of a normal full term pregnancy and delivery and who weighed over six pounds at birth. His growth and development were retarded, walking occurring at 18 months and talking after the age of two years. His mother felt that he had always been small and sickly compared with his siblings.
