Abstract

The term normal variant constitutional delay (also known as constitutional delay of growth and development) defines a group of children with delayed entry into puberty or poor progression through the initial stages of puberty, generally accompanied by short stature. By definition, this group of patients is characterized by normal nutrition, no history or evidence of systemic illness, and a normal physical examination, including body proportions. The typical skeletal age is moderately retarded.
