Abstract
Adrenocortical tumors in children are rare and show various clinical symptoms. We present an 8-year-old boy with peripheral precocious puberty caused by adrenocortical tumor. He showed elevated serum DHEA-S and 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and computed tomography revealed an abdominal mass. After surgical resection, he developed central precocious puberty. We report a rare case that showed progression from peripheral precocious puberty to central precocious puberty.
