Precocious puberty (PP) is a common reason for referral to pediatric endocrinology clinics, with a strong female predominance. PP is a broad term encompassing benign variants of normal development, gonadotropin-dependent precious puberty (GDPP), and gonadotropin-independent precocious puberty (GIPP). This article reviews the definitions, physiology, clinical presentation, evaluation and treatment of these conditions.
