These are: 1. low height-for-age (called stunting), considered to be an indicator of longterm malnutrition and poor growth; 2. low weight-for-height (called wasting), a result of recent severe weight loss; and 3. low weight-for-age (called underweight), found in both stunting or wasting. , 1992; Voss, 1995).

All had protuberant abdomens and some had decreased muscle bulk. Many had retarded bone-ages commensurate with their height-ages. All the children had depressed or infantile nasal bridges, giving a younger naso-orbital configuration than expected for their age. The researchers concluded that aetiology of the growth failure and possible hypopituitarism was unresolved. , 1969) began to question some of the concepts of subtle influence of deprivation or neglect upon metabolic functioning. They postulated that growth-failure occurs because of under-nutrition, and they presented evidence arising from a study of children hospitalised because of their failure to thrive: they found that 11 out of 13 children gained weight at an accelerated rate when adequately fed while living in a hospital environment where personal care was given to them.
