Summaries for Kowarski Syndrome

About this section
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Kowarski syndrome: A syndrome clinically characterized by short stature associated with bioinactive growth hormone, normal or slightly increased growth hormone secretion, pathologically low insulin-like growth factor 1 levels, and normal catch-up growth on growth hormone replacement therapy.

MalaCards based summary: Kowarski Syndrome, also known as pituitary dwarfism with normal immunoreactive growth hormone and low somatomedin, is related to short stature due to growth hormone qualitative anomaly, and has symptoms including delayed skeletal maturation, abnormality of metabolism/homeostasis and pituitary dwarfism. An important gene associated with Kowarski Syndrome is GH1 (Growth Hormone 1). Affiliated tissues include pituitary and bone.
