Craniofacial proportions of girls with TS, compared to normal children, show reduced size of the craniofacial complex, retrognathic profile and tendency towards advanced dental age. Growth hormone (GH) treatment in TS positively affects stature, but its effects on craniofacial growth and dental development are largely unknown. The aim of this study was to analyze and to correlate the craniofacial morphology, chronological, dental and bone ages of TS patients receiving GH or no...

Growth is a complex process, influenced to a large extent by GH. Children with GH deficiency (GHD) have typical somatic features, including short stature and a reduction of the craniofacial structures. Dental age (DA) is normally delayed in relation to chronological age (CA). The effect of GH replacement on craniofacial growth is still poorly understood. We studied the craniofacial development and dental maturation in 17 patients (4F, 13M) with GHD of different etiologies. The...
