Puberty that begins before age 8 in girls and before age 9 in boys is considered precocious puberty.Puberty includes rapid growth of bones and muscles, changes in body shape and size, and development of the body's ability to reproduce.The cause of precocious puberty often can't be found. Rarely, certain conditions, such as infections, hormone disorders, tumors, brain abnormalities or injuries, may cause precocious puberty.

To diagnose early puberty, your child's doctor will ask some questions and run some tests. They might include:A physical exam, to evaluate any changes in the body,A family history, to find out if early puberty might run in the family.Blood tests, which check a child's hormone and sometimes thyroid levels,X-rays, usually of the hand and wrist, to check a child's bone age. This is a way of seeing how quickly he or she is growing,MRIs of the brain. These are sometimes used to rule out medical problems that could cause central precocious puberty, like tumors. MRIs are not routine for most kids. They're used when an underlying cause is more likely, as in children under 6 or kids with other symptoms.Ultrasounds of the ovaries, for instance can be helpful in some cases.Injections are given as monthly shots into muscles or daily shots given just under the skin.Implants are tiny tubes a little over an inch long that are placed under the skin, usually in the upper arm. They gradually release medicine into the body.Nasal sprays are given daily.
