Autoimmune thyroiditis developed in a 9-year-old girl with precocious puberty approximately 8 months after initiation of Leuprolide acetate therapy. In addition, gonadotropin concentrations as measured by radioimmunoassay appeared high. Treatment with levothyroxine, in addition to continued Leuprolide acetate treatment, resolved gonadotropin elevation and hypothyroidism.
