Answer

For prepubertal males or females with delayed puberty (ie, lack of sexual characteristics by age 13 years in females or ages 13-14 years in males; also, the presence of primary amenorrhea at age 16 years), inquire about a family history of constitutional delay of growth and development. Constitutional delay in pubertal development is the most frequent clinical scenario.
