Central precocious puberty (CPP) is one of the most common pediatric endocrine diseases with an ever increasing incidence. CPP is associated with the loss of final adult height, early menarche, psychological problems and an increased risk of developing diseases in later adulthood such as female reproductive system tumors. The gonadotropin-releasing hormone stimulation test (GnRHST) is the gold standard for the diagnosis of CPP. However, the test is costly and time consuming to...
