Backgrounds: Limitations in the evaluation of the pituitary size and changes according to pubertal status make its validity questionable. Recently, in a small-scale study, pons ratio (PR) has been suggested as a more sensitive tool for diagnosis and etiological evaluation of growth hormone deficiency (GHD). The aim of the study is to evaluate the diagnostic value of PR in the diagnosis of GHD.
