We report a patient with short stature with normal GH provocative tests and low physiological 24 hour GH concentration. After starting GH treatment, growth velocity increased similarly to that seen in patients with a severe type of growth hormone deficiency. This is the first precise case report of a patient with typical neurosecretory dysfunction without any other complications.
