Diagnostic tests for Puberty symptoms:

Various tests are used in the diagnosis of Puberty symptoms. Some of these are listed below :

  • Physical examination
    • Height and weight centile measurements
    • Examine the pubic hair, genitals and breasts to assess the stage of puberty. The Tanner Staging system of pubertal development is based on breast, genital and pubic hair changes, with stage 1 being pre-pubertal and stage 5 the adult developmental stage. As well as indicating the biological stage of development, the Tanner stages correlate with special events and thus is useful in clinical assessment. E.g. first menstrual period in females is a late event in Tanner stage 4 and is usually preceded by at least 2 years of breast development. Height velocity reaches its peak in boys Tanner stage 4 and in girls in Tanner stage 2 or 3
    • Examine for papilledema and nervous system signs that may suggest a brain tumor; unilateral pigmentation that may suggest McCune-Albright syndrome; a testicular mass that may suggest Leydig cell tumor or hyperplasia; an adnexal (ovarian) mass that may suggest a granulosa cell tumor or arrhenoblastoma. All of the above conditions may cause early puberty
    • Examine for signs of Cushing's syndrome? - e.g. thin skin, bruising, high blood pressure, stretch marks, proximal muscle weakness, acne, pigmentation, excess hair on face, frontal balding in males, moon face, buffalo hump, truncal obesity, fluid retention. Cushing's syndrome may cause early puberty.
