Disease Dwarfism, Pituitary

Name Dwarfism, Pituitary
Synonyms Dwarfism, Growth Hormone Deficiency | Growth Hormone Deficiency Dwarfism | Hypophysial Dwarf | Hyposomatotrophic Dwarfism | Isolated GH Deficiency | Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency | Isolated HGH Deficiency | Isolated Human Growth Hormone Deficiency | Isolated Somatotropin Deficiency | Isolated Somatotropin Deficiency Disorder | Nanism, Pituitary | Pituitary Dwarf | Pituitary Dwarfism | Pituitary Nanism
Definition A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial GROWTH HORMONE deficiency, resulting from either the lack of GROWTH HORMONE-RELEASING FACTOR from the HYPOTHALAMUS or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (GH1) in the PITUITARY GLAND. It is also known as Type I pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE during development.
