YPHSIG stalwart Jerry Wales provides an insightful and practice based review on the causes, investigation and management of Disordered Pubertal Development in the February edition of Archives of Disease in Childhood: Education and Practice 2012;97:9-16 and reminds us that understanding normal and abnormal adolescent development is a core paediatric competency and that knowing when to refer, when to watch and wait and how to investigate and monitor treatment are the preserve of both the generalist and the specialist.
