An understanding of the normal endocrine changes of puberty fosters a logical approach to the diagnosis of abnormalities of puberty; therefore, a discussion of the developmental physiology of puberty begins this article. The causes of delayed puberty follow, with emphasis on the normal variation and constitutional delay in puberty. Finally, the causes of sexual precocity due to hypothalamic disturbances or other factors are discussed.
