I really don't know the exact answer to your question, but wanted to add that this can be normal. My father was almost full grown by the age of 14. Some children just develop at different rates, and I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it's causing other health concerns/problems.
Hi, I know this post is really old but I’m hoping to maybe get an answer. My son is 11 and has an advanced bone age of 13. We were told to try anastrazole. I am not big on meds so I’m reluctant to put him on it. Where did your son end up with his height? Did you treat him with any medicines at all for height? Thanks
Sounds good. Its nice to find another parent similarly situated.
Potential etiologies of advanced bone age include:
- familial tall stature
- excessive sex hormone
- juvenile idiopathic arthritis
- radiation-induced growth deformities
- hypothalamic mass
- adrenocortical tumor or adrenal hyperplasia
- ectopic gonadotropin tumor
- polyostotic fibrous dysplasia/McCune Albright
