ABSTRACT
The article reviews elements of the male physical exam and normal and abnormal pubertal findings. Physical examination should begin by reviewing the patient's vital signs, including pulse, respiratory rate, temperature, and blood pressure. A low temperature or bradycardia may suggest an eating disorder, while tachycardia can be a sign of thyroid disease or drug use. Discussing the expectation of male adolescents regarding their growth is a great way to connect with the patient. It was said that African-American and Mexican-American adolescents are at the greatest risk of obesity. A short and obese male should be evaluated for an endocrine disorder. Delayed onset of puberty which lead to short stature can be a result of Prader-Willi syndrome. The cause of tall stature can be determined by testicular examination. INSET: Of what value is the sports physical?.
