ABSTRACT
Pubertal gynecomastia is benign type of breast enlargement of males during puberty. This entity is seen in 70% of boys in the pubertal period. No underlying pathology is identified in most of the cases. Regular follow-up examinations of the patients are warranted since gynecomastia resolves spontaneously during the puberty. Few cases require medical and surgical treatment.
