Abstract

Growth in 110 children with Legg-Calve-Perthes' disease (LCPD) was longitudinally followed throughout the growth period. The infancy childhood puberty (ICP) growth model, which has the advantage that reference values can be adjusted for the individual age at pubertal maturation, was used. On the average, the children were slightly shorter at birth and they remained short throughout the entire growth period to maturity. At maturity, the boys were 4.4 cm and the girls were 2.5 cm below the reference mean. The growth velocity was normal at the time of diagnosis, prepubertally, and during puberty. Boys and girls differed only in that the boys were more overweight.
