Abstract

This article covers considerations in the etiology of various forms of precocious puberty and premature sexual development. The normal pubertal process with maturation of the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis is reviewed. The differential diagnosis of precocious puberty is discussed with particular emphasis on the difference between gonadotropin-dependent and gonadotropin-independent processes. Established therapies and newer medical treatments with their pathophysiologic rationale are considered in detail.
