Cerebral Palsy Maturational Delay
Researchers have found that adolescents with cerebral palsy have delayed and prolonged puberty with a poor nutritional state as the primary reason. They may also develop precocious puberty, which occurs when puberty begins before the age of 7 in girls and age 9 in boys.

Amoungst young adults with cerebral palsy, there is a higher incidence of cryptorchidism (a failure of testicular descent into the scrotum) than in the general population. Some studies have shown that 53% of cerebral palsy sufferers at the age of 21 have this condition. It is important that a doctor perform a physical examination to young males with cerebral palsy to determine whether they are suffering cryptorchidism.
