Abstract: There is still a lack of data from randomized, controlled, long-term studies of growth hormone (GH) treatment in children born small for gestational age (SGA), but the available evidence indicates consistently that GH therapy is a valid growth-promoting treatment in these children, particularly if started early. Whilst side effects appear uncommon, ongoing surveillance is required and treated children should be monitored for changes in glucose homeostasis, lipid profiles and blood pressure, especially during puberty. We provide an update on the safety and efficacy of GH treatment in short children born SGA.
