Since 1985 molecular biology techniques have made possible the synthetic synthesis of pure human growth hormone in potentially unlimited amounts. With this increased availability its use in patients other than children with growth hormone deficiency has been associated with clinical ethical questions. This statement presents an analysis of the current status of the use of human growth hormone in children.
