Short stature in adolescence may cause some medical, psychological and social concerns, in addition to specific diagnostic and therapeutical problems. Among the various causes of short stature, the present review will examine in detail some forms such as constitutional delay of growth and puberty, growth hormone deficiency and Turner's syndrome, since these forms will benefit from an appropriate medical approach in adolescence. The diagnostic and therapeutical problems these forms may present in adolescence are also discussed.
