Abstract

For twenty years, Western Europe has taken part in a substantial development of international adoption. A consequent risk of precocious puberty affects little girls following such adoption. This diagnosis is still often, unrecognized or passed off as a problem from the country of origin. It is, important however not to delay treatment so as not compromise the final height. The start of puberty depends, heavily on weight. Weight gain provokes thesecretion of leptine, the fatter increasing the frequence of GnRH peaks. Hence the radical change in diet which often experienced by the little girlsadopted from developing countries and placed in rich countries, can provoke the onset of puberty. It is therefore necessary to, follow very. closely the height and weight curves of children adopted from overseas, particularly during the first yearfollowing adoption. The risk is as, great as the need for an, improved diet itself. Girls aged from three to nine at the time of their adoption comprise the group most susceptible to this disease. It is, advised to have an X-ray taken upon their arrival to ascertain the age of the bones, allowing follow-up care in the case of a too rapid acceleration in, growth. The treatment is the sam e for all, central precocious puberty.
