Precocious puberty in preschool children
Author(s): Asmaa A Milyani, Abdulmoein E Al-Agha
Abstract: Precocious puberty (PP) is the development of pubertal changes at a pathologically earlier age than the mean age for the general population. It may either occur as a result of premature activation of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Axis or as a result of peripheral stimulation. PP is now recognised to occur more frequently in the preschool population, and therefore we report these cases aiming to develop a better understanding of the responsible causation and underlying factors.
