  140. 140. Why Tintin does not grow older
  141. 141. Conclusions We hypothesize that Tintin has growth hormone deficiency and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism from repeated trauma. This could explain his delayed statural growth, delayed onset of puberty and lack of libido. We also believe that involving children in research (the first 2 authors) is possible and beneficial. As a result, A.C. learned to count to 10 with good interobserver reliability and now knows the meaning of the expression ―tomber dans les pommes.‖ The main limitation of our article is the lack of paraclinical confirmation of the diagnosis. But, according to the second author (L.O.C.), ―Thats alright.‖ To conclude, it is difficult to determine accurately Tintins age and level of physical and sexual development. He has the physique of a child, but his conduct suggests that of an adult. Throughout his adventures, he has no girlfriend or marriage plans to curtail his activities. His ―neutrality‖ allows both children and adults around the world to identify with this hero, which probably explains his universal appeal after 75 years of public life.
