Scope note: Forma de enanismo debida a déficit parcial o completo de SOMATOTROPINA que puede deberse a déficit de FACTOR LIBERADOR DE SOMATOTROPINA (SOMATOLIBERINA) por el HIPOTÁLAMO o a mutaciones del gen de la SOMATOROPINA (GH1) en la HIPÓFISIS. También se denomina enanismo hipofiario tipo 1. El enanismo hipofisario humano es debido a déficit de SOMATOTROPINA durante el desarrollo.

Scope note: A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial GROWTH HORMONE deficiency, resulting from either the lack of GROWTH HORMONE-RELEASING FACTOR from the HYPOTHALAMUS or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (GH1) in the PITUITARY GLAND. It is also known as Type I pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE during development.
