Growth failure is a medical term for a pattern of a child's growth which is poorer than normal for age, sex, stage of maturation, and genetic height expectation. Growth failure usually has an abnormal cause or causes. Many short children are growing normally and this is not referred to as growth failure.
Linear growth is measured by change of recumbent length in infants until age 2-3 years of age, when a child's height can be measured standing.
