Objective: The aim of this research was to study the craniofacial structures in Short-Statured patients in Shiraz, 2009.

Materials and Methods: The method of this study is descriptive. The case group consists of 178 (90 girls - 88 boys) Short-Statured patients who referred to Endocrinology Department of Shiraz Namazi Hospital and a private office to consult about short-stature and growth problems. Considering the skeletal age, they had been categorized as two solid groups, familial short statured (76 total: 38 girls, 38 boys), and un-familial short-statured consisting of other causes of short-stature (102 total: 52 girls, 50 boys). For craniofacial structural evaluation, 50 Short-statured patients (25 boys and 25 girls) were compared to two normal groups divided according to their malocclusion. 147 patients (74 girls, 73 boys) with normal growth but class II malocclusion as group 1, and group 2 of 184 patients (90 girls, 94 boys) with normal growth but class II malocclusion.

Results: Evaluation of craniofacial indexes of short-statured patients indicated that the male short-statured patients have significantly shorter cranial base length and more convex profile (P<0.05) in compare with the group of normal growth and class 1 malocclusion. Comparing to normal class I, the female short-statured patients have significantly shorter cranial base length and have more convex profile and more vertical growth pattern (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Evaluation of craniofacial indexes showed that short-statured patients have more convex profile and more vertical growth.
