Abstract

McCune-Albright syndrome and testotoxicosis are rare forms of peripheral precocious puberty. Our understanding of the pathophysiology and mechanism of these diseases has significantly increased following identification of their underlying molecular etiology. However, their treatment remains challenging. We provide a review of the various treatment modalities used in both conditions with an update on recent trials using novel and promising pharmacological agents.
