This 4 year old girl began to develop pubic hair around age 3 and by age 4 had developed breast buds. She was well above the 95th percentile in height and weight. A bone scan showed a bone age of 11 years. As part of the work-up for precocious puberty, she received an MRI scan of her brain. Following this, difinitive surgery for the condition was performed.
