Abstract

Background. Central precocious puberty (CPP) is idiopathic in 90% of girls and 60% of boys, while some cases are caused by lesions of central nervous system (CNS), a condition often referred to as organic CPP. We aimed to analyze the etiology of organic CPP in a large cohort of girls and boys and determine gender-related differences.
