Abstract [en]

Research on the health-related quality of life (HrQoL) impact of short stature and its treatment in children and adolescents has developed recently. Based on a PubMed literature search, studies addressing this issue were identified and considerable methodological problems mainly related to the HrQoL instruments used and conflicting results are discussed in this mini review. Additionally, this mini review identifies a need for further research and indicates potential directions.
