          Abstract

          A total of 37 girls with a history of benign premature pubarche were followed into puberty; a disproportionate number of girls experienced early menarche. Twenty-five had some degree of acne, 14 had hirsutism, and 5 had acanthosis nigricans. Body mass index (BMI) at initial presentation correlated with postpubertal BMI and was weakly correlated with postpubertal hirsutism.
