In brief: Precocious puberty

Precocious puberty is pubertal development before age 8 in girls and age 9 in boys.
The causes are too many and complex to review here, but are divided into gdpp) early developmental signals from the brain, and gipp) abnormal steroid production, such as from tumors or ingesting hormonal medication. Over 80% of gdpp in girls is idiopathic, meaning no cause is identified.
