The authors discussed early pubertal maturation associated with catch-up growth in adopted girls in relation to these findings (17).

The early pubertal development would seem to be associated with intrauterine factors as well as with the severity of stunting postnatally and the rate of prepubertal catch-up growth. The mechanism underlying the early pubertal development, the metabolic changes during catch-up growth and the optimal management of nutrition rehabilitation after chronic undernutrition in children, need to be clarified by further research.
