Sabine E. Hannema, MD, PhD, of the department of pediatrics, Leiden University Medical Centre in the Netherlands, and colleagues evaluated 28 adolescents (median age, 16 years) transitioning from male to female treated with oral estrogen for at least 1 year to determine the efficacy and safety of estrogen treatment for pubertal induction.
