Author(s): Assumpta Chapp-Jumbo*

A three year old female child brought to the hospital by the mother who was worried about the child’s breast size and consequent social and health implications. We documented enlargement of the right breast at Tanner stage 3. The left side was normal for her age. There were no other signs of puberty. Calls for health education on natural history to prevent drastic interventions like mastectomy as already suggested to her. Also need to shield the child from paedophiles and possible poor self-image while growing up.
