Abstract

Pelvic pneumography was performed in 150 children, including those with precocious puberty, suspected pelvic masses, abdominal pain, virilization, ambiguous genitalia, gonadal dysgenesis, Stein-Leventhal syndrome, amenorrhea, and contralateral inguinal hernia detection. Pneumography proved safe, accurate, and easy to perform. However, advances in sonography have limited the use of pneumography primarily to the investigation of infant intersex problems and confirmation of idiopathic precocious puberty in the infant or very young girl.
