A Growing Controversy, 17 Aug 2003 [cached]
Edward O. Reiter, a leading pediatric endocrinologist and a professor at the Tufts University School of Medicine, agrees that a change in FDA policy would be appropriate.However, he noted, growth hormone should be used very sparingly among hormonally sufficient children.
"Just because a child is a little below the bottom of the growth chart, I don't think you should say he's a candidate for hormone treatment.You want to choose carefully."
If a child is very small, has growth potential and the family and child are having emotional and social problems because of the child's small size, Reiter thinks hormone injections are appropriate.

Dr. Edward Reiter, chairman of pediatrics at Bay State Children's Hospital in Springfield, Mass., added, "The issue is a Sherlock Holmes kind of thing.
Reiter was moderator of a press conference announcing the findings.
Gynecomastia is associated with an imbalance of estrogens (so-called female hormones) and androgens (so-called male hormones).Young boys don't produce much testosterone, so there is nothing in the body to counteract extra estrogen, such as might come from mistakenly taking a mother's birth control pill or, more concerning, an estrogen-secreting tumor.
The condition is unusual."I may see a patient every year or every other year with this, a pre-pubertal boy who has some breast development," Reiter said."Usually, it's a tiny amount, and you never find out what it is, then it goes away," he explained.
"My guess is that this sort of thing occurs in a scattered way in little boys all the time," Reiter said."It may well be that someone wouldn't even think of this.Now, doctors can ask if the patient is using any products," he said.
