Early Markers of Pubertal Onset

by FORD, KANTI RANU

Abstract (Summary)
This longitudinal study compared the timing of foot and height velocities with pubertal onset in girls. There was no difference between ages of increased foot and height growth velocities; both occurred before onset of secondary sexual characteristics. Change in foot size may represent an early marker for transition to puberty.
