The diagnosis of psychosocial dwarfism (PSD) was made in a 7 year old boy upon admission to the hospital. In the period following admission, he grew at a slightly accelerated rate of 0.6 cm in 24 days (extrapolated growth rate--9.1 cm/yr); his caloric intake was 1663 calories/day (147 cal/kg/day), stimulable growth hormone was 5.9 ng/ml and somatomedin activity was in the hypopituitary range (0.24, 0.05 U/ml). In the following period of marked catch-up growth of 8.6 cm in 102 days (extrapolated growth rate 30.8 cm/yr), his caloric intake decreased significantly to 1514 cal/day (106 cal/kg/day, 0.005 less than p less than 0.01), stimulable growth hormone in this period was 13.6 ng/ml and somatomedin activity normalized (0.98 U/ml). While under continued observation, with separation from his favorite nurse, his growth velocity dropped significantly to the rate immediately following admission, but there was no change in his stimulable growth hormone or in somatomedin activity. With the return of his favorite nurse, he resumed his previous rapid catch-up growth with no change in caloric intake (p equals not significant), growth hormone level, or somatomedin activity. Upon transient return to his depriving home, his growth rate decreased to 1.4 cm in 70 days (extrapolated growth rate 7.2 cm/yr); growth hormone remained in the normal range. Somatomedin activity was in the low normal range (0.57 U/ml) and rose to high normal activity (1.31 U/ml) as rapid catch-up growth resumed after he had been readmitted. We conclude from these data that: 1. Serum somatomedin in longstanding untreated PSD may be in the hypopituitary range. 2. Markedly fluctuating growth rates during recovery in this patient with PSD were not due to changes in caloric nutrition, growth hormone release or somatomedin activity, but to an as yet unidentified factor affecting growth during emotional stress.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 20. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 February 2021.
All research outputs
of 18,213,766 outputs
Outputs from Pädiatrie und Pädologie Supplementum
of 1 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 299,945 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Pädiatrie und Pädologie Supplementum
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,213,766 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.4. This one scored the same or higher as 0 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 299,945 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
