Precocious puberty often leads to short adult height. Since the introduction of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist treatment for LHRH-dependent precocious hormone (LHRH) agonist treatment for LHRH-dependent precocious puberty in 1979, several reports have shown increased predicted height among LHRH agonist-treated children. To determine whether the LHRH agonist deslorelin can normalize the adult height of children with precocious puberty, we are conducting a long-term pilot… CONTINUE READING
