Partial Precocious Puberty Many children with early signs of puberty are actually experiencing "partial" precocious puberty. Some girls, usually beginning between the ages of six months and three years, may experience breast development that later disappears, or that may remain without other physical changes of puberty. Other girls and boys may experience early growth of pubic or underarm hair without any other changes in sexual development.
Children with partial precocious puberty may require evaluation to rule out true precocious puberty, but they generally need no treatment and usually will show the other expected signs of puberty at the usual age.
