McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is a rare disease characterised by triad of monostotic or polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, café au-lait skin spots and a variety of endocrine disorders; precocious puberty (PP) being the most common presenting symptom in female patients. Hyperfunction endocrinopathies including hyperthyroidism, growth hormone excess and cortisol excess are typical presentations in MAS. We present a case of 21-year-old woman with clinical and radiological characteristics of MAS triad; she presented with short stature which was attributed to both growth hormone deficiency and PP. Growth hormone deficiency in MAS has not been reported in English medical literature.
