HH is a rare  condition. Treatment is highly individualised. GNR and Neuro Endocrine Mx are ideal now a days.

Hello, Sorry to hear this. HH can cause two types of symptoms - epilepsy or hormonal disturbances like precocious puberty. Depending on the symptoms which develop, it can be treated with medications. Unfortunately medications are usually not as effective as surgery in some cases. Please upload your scans and we can discuss this further. Best wishes.
