Abstract

Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (100 /μg IV) produced a response of LH, FSH, testosterone, and estradiol in children with premature pubarche that was not different from that among normal prepubertal children. Hence, this study provides no evidence that hypothalamic-pituitary- gonadal maturation occurs with the onset of premature sexual hair.
