Growth measurements, including weight, height, and head circumference, of 67 early treated children with phenylketonuria (PKU) were compared to normal standards from infancy up to six years of age. Children with PKU, both girls and boys, achieved growth parameters that were similar to those of normals. Head circumference of the boys at six years of age and of the girls at three and four years of age correlated positively with IQ scores. Weight/height (W/H) ratios at one year of age correlated positively with IQ scores for boys. Similar correlations between IQs and weight/height ratios were found for girls at one, two, and three years of age.
