:roll: What is the name of the disease/syndrome, that prohibits physical maturation?
Have seen many times on television, but don't know the official name. If you know please e-mail me at cassgiff@aol.
com. I'm not very computer-literate, and may never find this site again.

In response to your question of what is the name of the disease that causes growth retardation. There are several. Here are the names of some of them:
Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
Nutritional Short Stature
Intrauterine Growth Retardation
Russell Silver Syndrome
My guess is that what you are looking for is Cushing's Syndrome.
Hope this helps.
S. I emailed this personally to you per your request. :wink:
