Keywords:Bifid uvula, Hypopituitarism, midline defect
A 20-year-old male was referred to the Endocrinology Clinic in view of abnormal thyroid function test result and poor development of secondary sexual characteristics. He was born out of non-consanguineous marriage and had a history of breech delivery at term. He had perinatal complications in the form of delayed cry and lower respiratory tract infection. Developmental delay was also present (delayed motor, speech and social milestones). His scholastic performance was below average and he reported being the shortest child in class from kindergarten.
