Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The onset and progress of puberty was followed in 18 patients (7 males and 11 females) with Laron-type dwarfism (LTD). The boys had delayed puberty, testicular enlargement occurring between 12--14 years being the first sign. The first conscious ejaculation occurred between 17--21 years and full maturity was reached after the age of 22. In girls menarche occurred between 13--14 years and full maturity was reached between 16-19 years. Two patients--one male and one female--have children.
