Serum testosterone rose dramatically overnight. A synthetic GnRH bolus elicited a brisk LH response, typical of early puberty. One week later, when serum testosterone was constant as a result of the steady state brought about by the IM injection, LH and FSH secretion were severely suppressed to or below assay sensitivity, without alteration of pituitary responsiveness. We studied other boys with smaller doses of testosterone and showed that the pulsatile secretion of LH was very sensitive to all but the smallest doses Figure 2-6.
