Background: Estimation of the child’s genetic height potential (target height) is an important tool in evaluating growth disorders. Midparental height (MPH) calculated as (Mothers height+Fathers height)/2±6.5 cm), used for this purpose, represents the child’s expected height based on parental heights.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the classical MPH calculations for our population and to explore the optimal MPH model using different ...
