A footage had emerged showing the embarrassment faced by a 4-year-old girl who was accused of witchcraft in Plateau State because her breasts were developed at her age.

The girl was taken to a certain church where she was publicly stripped totally naked and accused of being possessed.

The church members concluded that it was ‘the work of the devil’, as they prepared to carry out a ‘deliverance’ session on her.

The 4-year-old’s much bloated stomach was also considered as pregnancy by members of the church.

Apparently, members of the church failed to consider possible medical explanation to the rare condition.

However, science has a different explanation to the growth of breasts at such a tender age.

A medical explanation as analysed by WEB MD stated:

“Puberty starts on average in girls between ages 8-13 and in boys between ages 9-14.

Doctors diagnose early puberty when this normal process starts early and continues to progress through growth spurts and bone maturation, usually for reasons we don’t understand. Girls who show significant signs of puberty and its progression before age 7 and boys before age 9 are considered precocious. About 1 out of 5,000 children are affected.

  • Central precocious puberty is the more common type. The process is identical to normal puberty, but happens early. The pituitary gland is prompted to produce hormones, called gonadotropins. These hormones in turn stimulate the testicles or ovaries to make other hormones, testosterone or estrogen. It’s these sex hormones that cause the changes of puberty, like breast development in girls.
  • Peripheral precocious puberty or precocious pseudo-puberty is a different condition. It’s also rarer. The hormones estrogen and testosterone trigger the symptoms. But the brain and pituitary gland are not involved. It’s usually a local problem with the ovaries, testicles, adrenal gland, or a severely underactive thyroid gland.

There are other conditions that might look like early puberty to parents — and sometimes even to pediatricians — but aren’t.

  • Premature thelarche is early breast development at a young age. It often appears in girls who are just a few years old.  While troubling for parents, it resolves on its own and is not true early puberty. It does not require treatment but should be evaluated.

  • Premature pubarche is the early development of some pubic or underarm hair at an early age. It can be caused by premature adrenarche, when the adrenal glands start releasing hormones early. Again, while it might seem alarming, it’s generally not a problem and not an early sign of puberty. However, because this may represent the first sign of an abnormal  and excess release of adrenal hormones, it should be evaluated.”
