Case Summary

A 9-year-old girl was referred to our endocrinology service for short stature. She was otherwise well without a history of headaches or visual symptoms. She was a full-term baby with normal birth weight and no prenatal abnormalities. Upon endocrinologic evaluation, she was found to have central growth hormone deficiency and hypothyroidism. She was referred to radiology for a brain MRI to rule out a structural cause for her multiple endocrinopathies.
