Dwarfism vs Cretinism

Hello Everyone,
   How do we differentiate between dwarfism and cretinism?
Just remember GIRL

G- Growth- Reduced in both
I- IQ- Normal in pituitary dwarfism and decreased in cretenism
R-Reproduction-Absent or delayed puberty in both
L-Limbs- Proportionate in Dwarfs and Disproportionate in cretins.
                (C follows D)(cretins have disproportionate limbs)

What are features seen in a cretin?
Remember 5P's
  1. Pot-bellied
  2. Pale
  3. Puffy-faced child
  4. Protruding umbilicus
  5. Protuberant tongue

That's all,
Thank you,
Chaitanya Inge
