In brief: ANOREXIA
She is small normal being in the 10th percentile with anorexia and delayed bone grouth and delayed puberty.
With proper guidance and nutrition she can catch up in grouth and development.

In brief: Anorexia
She needs to see a pediatric endocrinologist.
I'd be concerned about pituitary dysfunction which could cause short stature and hypogonadismlow. Some chromosome abnormalities should also be ruled out.
