Growth is a process which affects every individual from the hour of birth to the hour of death and forms a background to almost every medical discipline. Written in a clear and approachable style, this book provides an integrated overview of all aspects of human growth. It covers the processes of growth, considers both the biological and environmental factors involved, looks at disturbances of growth and repair and includes indices of maturity, and a chapter on old
age.
