Take Evaluation ViewAbstracts

This session will focus on helping the busy pediatrician quickly recognize the characteristic findings of children with tall or short stature or whose weight falls well above or well below the normal range who have a genetic basis for their growth disturbance. An algorithm will be provided to give the physician a method for efficiently determining which patients would benefit from a genetics evaluation and will be demonstrated using interactive case discussions involving the most common disorders associated with atypical stature or weight.
