    The article presents the results of a longitudinal study to examine whether indoor coal combustion for heating, which release pollutants into the air, affects early childhood growth. The study group consisted of a total of 1133 children from the Teplice and Prachatice districts, Czech Rep., who were followed from birth to age 36 month. Data were compiled from self-administered questionnaires and medical records. The association between coal use and children´s height was modified by postnatal cigarette smoke exposure. The results suggested that pollution from indoor coal use may impair early childhood skeletal growth to age 36 months.
