In Reply.—We thank Dr Harris for bringing attention to this interesting report of scalp inunction, resulting in isosexual precocity in a 5-year-old girl. We believe that our report is singular in that heterosexual precocity resulted, a condition that is more likely to be pernicious and pursued by invasive diagnostic procedures.
