SHORT STATURE DUE TO PRIMARY ACID-LABILE SUBUNIT DEFICIENCY


Description

Short stature due to primary acid-labile subunit (ALS) deficiency is characterized by moderate postnatal growth deficit, markedly low circulating levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3), and hyperinsulinemia, in the absence of growth hormone (GH) deficiency or GH insensitivity.

Most common symptoms of SHORT STATURE DUE TO PRIMARY ACID-LABILE SUBUNIT DEFICIENCY

  • Growth delay
  • Micrognathia
  • Delayed skeletal maturation
  • Delayed puberty
  • Insulin resistance
