In brief: FTT
Failure to thrive (ftt) is a common problem in pediatric practice.
It is more common in children living in poverty. In one report from a rural primary care setting, 10% of children less than one year of age had ftt. In some populations, up to one-third of patients with ftt may go undiagnosed.
