What Causes Growth Hormone Deficiency?
Growth hormone deficiency may be congenital (an individual is born with the deficiency), or it may be acquired later in life.

Acquired growth hormone deficiency may result from trauma, infections, pituitary and related tumors, radiation to the brain, brain cancer, or other diseases.
