Abstract

Long-standing acquired hypothyroidism can rarely be associated with precocious puberty and polycystic ovaries. The authors report such a case, which responded to the simple replacement of thyroid hormone. It is important to look for hypothyroidism in girls with ovarian masses and precocious puberty to avoid surgery on the ovaries.
