The Endocrinologist 18(1):p 23-24, January 2008. | DOI: 10.1097/TEN.0b013e3181653116 Buy Metrics Abstract A 19-year-old man presented with short stature and delayed puberty. He had been taking growth hormone and levothyroxine. Laboratory testing showed that he had hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism and secondary adrenocortical deficiency. His bone age was 12.5 years and his epiphyses were open. Replacement of all missing hormones, however, failed to result in the expected “catch-up growth.” Gastroenterologic investigation revealed celiac disease as the probable cause. © 2008 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
