PMID:  1382007     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors present case reports of psychosis and idiopathic precocious puberty (IPP) with tall stature in two 7-year-old boys. Other similarities in the two cases are discussed. Review of the literature revealed only one report regarding the role of accelerated sexual maturation in the clinical picture of psychoses in children and one case report of Pervasive Developmental Disorder and IPP in a 5-year-old girl. Possible mechanisms by which psychosis and IPP with tall stature may be related are discussed.
