GRASP - Genetic Research Analysing Short Patients

Referral Criteria

We welcome samples from any child with undiagnosed short stature (height <-2 SDS or short for parents), especially those with:

  • Consanguineous families
  • Affected siblings or parent(s)
  • GH or IGF-1 insensitivity phenotypes plus or minus dysmorphic features

We are not currently investigating children with a diagnosis of GH insufficiency. 

We offer genetic analysis free of charge. For genetic testing we require blood or DNA samples from your patient and his or her parents, where possible. We also require a completed consent form and some clinical, auxological and biochemical information. You can find the relevant forms here.  

If you would like to discuss your patient in more detail, please get in touch with a member of our team.
