I want to know related to child growth and if growth is stunted at the age of fifteen. whom should I consult?

1 Doctor Answered
At the age of 15 yrs as per your information if correct this girl is a case of short stature because 137.2 cm for this girl falls below 3 sd for the age and sex. You have noticed late so without wasting time you should consult any pediatric endocrinologist as early as possible. As wt is also less so there can be some systemic illness which is not obvious but chronic.
