Precocious puberty of cerebral origin

Surg Neurol. 1979 Apr;11(4):315-26.

Abstract

Eighty-two cases of precocious puberty of cerebral origin were reviewed. All shared as a common factor the distortion, compression, or destruction of diencephalic structures. Attempts were made to parallel basic research findings with those derived from human pathology, hoping to gain further insight into the physiopathology of precocious puberty of cerebral origin.
