This session discusses the five Tanner stages that boys and girls go through in pubertal development.

 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of pubertal assessment
  • Describe Tanner's five stages of puberty in boys and girls
  • Assess the pubertal stage of an adolescent

 

Introduction

Passing through puberty at a normal timing is a central part of healthy adolescent development. Identifying where an individual is on the spectrum from pre-pubertal to late or completed puberty is important in many clinical situations.

There is a normal variability of up to 4-5 years in the timing of puberty in healthy young people.

A developmental assessment should be a standard part of any adolescent history taking and examination.
