Title:
Effect of chemotherapy on growth.
Authors:
Ogilvy-Stuart, Amanda L; Shalet, Stephen M
Abstract:
Growth restriction has been demonstrated clearly following the treatment of childhood malignancies, even in the absence of irradiation to the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. The use of CT and spinal irradiation in the original treatment of brain tumours has a marked effect on growth. This effect is most profound in children who have received both treatments and cannot be overcome using GH therapy at conventional doses.
