PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY

Key words: Precocious puberty, Gonadotropins, GnRH agonists

Precocious puberty is a condition that has both physical and psychological effects on affected children and their families. Therefore, an accurate work up is necessary to understand the dynamic course of the disease in terms of rate of pubertal progression, statural growth, bone age progression, development of reproductive functions and psychosocial adjustment and wellbeing. The salient clinical, laboratory and radiological features of the possible causes of precocious puberty are reviewed and the current therapeutic options are discussed.
