DAVID HERRERO-MORIN, J et al. Hypertrichosis cubiti in a girl with precocious puberty: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2018, vol.116, n.6, pp.e765-e768. ISSN 0325-0075.

Hypertrichosis cubiti is a localized increase in hair density, length and thickness. It is an uncommon and benign entity with very few patients described in the medical literature (more or less than half a hundred). Half of the described patients associate other defects or malformations and the other half are purely aesthetic cases. Early pubarche in girls is defined as the onset of pubic hair before 8 years of age. We present a six-year-old patient with the association not previously described of hypertrichosis cubiti and precocious pubarche.

Keywords : Hypertrichosis cubiti; Hairy elbow syndrome; Premature pubarche.
