NSA 3/16 Pediatrics: Endocrine Issues in Puberty
The purpose for the NSA CME is PCPs occasionally refer based on parental pubertal concern without examining patient (for example, obese girls with pseudogynecomatia or boys with parental concern of delayed puberty who have pubertal testes). Also, PCPs will occasionally refer for pubertal findings within normal range (for example, breast development at age 7) and for normal variants of puberty (for example, benign premature adrenarche).
Pediatricians, and other interested providers.
1.Use econsult page to help direct appropriate evaluation and referral for patients with pubertal concerns
2. Identify patients who have abnormal puberty who require additional evaluation and referral
3. Identify patients who have normal variation of puberty who only need reassurance
