Lina Medina, from the Ticrapo District of Peru, gave birth by cesarean
section in Lima at age ​5 1⁄2. The infant was a 2.69 kg (5.9 lb), 47.5 cm
(18.7 in) boy named Gerardo. Medina's parents, who assumed their daughter
had a tumor, took her to a hospital, where she was then found to be 7 months
pregnant when she was about 5 years and 6 months old. She gave birth ​1 1⁄2
months later. By interrogating her parents, the doctors understood that
Medina had entered into precocious puberty (when hormone glands are
activated earlier than normal) very early after her birth. Medina's father
was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse, but was later released due to
lack of evidence, and the baby's biological father was never identified .
