About Growth Delay, Constitutional

Constitutional growth delay (CGD) is a term describing a temporary delay in the skeletal growth and height of a child with no other physical abnormalities causing the delay. Short stature may be the result of a growth pattern inherited from a parent (familial) or occur for no apparent reason (idiopathic). Typically at some point during childhood growth slows down, eventually resuming at a normal rate. CGD is the most common cause of short stature and delayed puberty. The exact cause of CGD is unknown.
