Abstract

A 6-year-old girl with central (true) precocious puberty was successfully treated with a combination of the luteinising hormone releasing hormone analogue (D-Trp6)-LH-RH and cyproterone acetate. This treatment led to an almost complete arrest of gonadotrophin and oestrogen secretion, induced regression of pubertal signs, and markedly slowed bone maturation. It is suggested that the paradoxical refractoriness of the gonadotrophic and gonadal cells induced by long-term treatment with LH-RH agonists can be exploited in the treatment of precocious puberty.
