Hypopituitarism: Diminution or cessation of secretion of one or more hormones from the anterior pituitary gland (including LH; FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE; SOMATOTROPIN; and CORTICOTROPIN). This may result from surgical or radiation ablation, non-secretory PITUITARY NEOPLASMS, metastatic tumors, infarction, PITUITARY APOPLEXY, infiltrative or granulomatous processes, and other conditions.Pituitary Hormones: Hormones secreted by the PITUITARY GLAND including those from the anterior lobe (adenohypophysis), the posterior lobe (neurohypophysis), and the ill-defined intermediate lobe. Structurally, they include small peptides, proteins, and glycoproteins. They are under the regulation of neural signals (NEUROTRANSMITTERS) or neuroendocrine signals (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) from the hypothalamus as well as feedback from their targets such as ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES; ANDROGENS; ESTROGENS.Pituitary Diseases: Disorders involving either the ADENOHYPOPHYSIS or the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. These diseases usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PITUITARY HORMONES. Neoplastic pituitary masses can also cause compression of the OPTIC CHIASM and other adjacent structures.Human Growth Hormone: A 191-amino acid polypeptide hormone secreted by the human adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR), also known as GH or somatotropin. Synthetic growth hormone, termed somatropin, has replaced the natural form in therapeutic usage such as treatment of dwarfism in children with growth hormone deficiency.Pituitary Hormones, Anterior: Hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Structurally, they include polypeptide, protein, and glycoprotein molecules.Dwarfism, Pituitary: A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial GROWTH HORMONE deficiency, resulting from either the lack of GROWTH HORMONE-RELEASING FACTOR from the HYPOTHALAMUS or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (GH1) in the PITUITARY GLAND. It is also known as Type I pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE during development.Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Empty Sella Syndrome: A condition when the SELLA TURCICA is not filled with pituitary tissue. The pituitary gland is either compressed, atrophied, or removed. There are two types: (1) primary empty sella is due a defect in the sella diaphragm leading to arachnoid herniation into the sellar space; (2) secondary empty sella is associated with the removal or treatment of PITUITARY NEOPLASMS.Diabetes Insipidus: A disease that is characterized by frequent urination, excretion of large amounts of dilute URINE, and excessive THIRST. Etiologies of diabetes insipidus include deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (also known as ADH or VASOPRESSIN) secreted by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS, impaired KIDNEY response to ADH, and impaired hypothalamic regulation of thirst.Pituitary Function Tests: Examinations that evaluate functions of the pituitary gland.Hormones: Chemical substances having a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ or organs. The term was originally applied to substances secreted by various ENDOCRINE GLANDS and transported in the bloodstream to the target organs. It is sometimes extended to include those substances that are not produced by the endocrine glands but that have similar effects.Russell's Viper: A genus of snakes of the family VIPERIDAE. It is distributed in West Pakistan, most of India, Burma, Ceylon, Thailand, southeast China, Taiwan, and a few islands of Indonesia. It hisses loudly when disturbed and strikes with great force and speed. Very prolific, it gives birth to 20-60 young. This viper is the leading cause of snakebite in India and Burma. (Moore: Poisonous Snakes of the World, 1980, p127)Hormone Replacement Therapy: Therapeutic use of hormones to alleviate the effects of hormone deficiency.Hypothalamic Diseases: Neoplastic, inflammatory, infectious, and other diseases of the hypothalamus. Clinical manifestations include appetite disorders; AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; SLEEP DISORDERS; behavioral symptoms related to dysfunction of the LIMBIC SYSTEM; and neuroendocrine disorders.Pituitary Neoplasms: Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.Hypothalamic Neoplasms: Benign and malignant tumors of the HYPOTHALAMUS. Pilocytic astrocytomas and hamartomas are relatively frequent histologic types. Neoplasms of the hypothalamus frequently originate from adjacent structures, including the OPTIC CHIASM, optic nerve (see OPTIC NERVE NEOPLASMS), and pituitary gland (see PITUITARY NEOPLASMS). Relatively frequent clinical manifestations include visual loss, developmental delay, macrocephaly, and precocious puberty. (From Devita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2051)Adrenocorticotropic Hormone: An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).Septo-Optic Dysplasia: A condition resulting from congenital malformations involving the brain. The syndrome of septo-optic dysplasia combines hypoplasia or agenesis of the SEPTUM PELLUCIDUM and the OPTIC NERVE. The extent of the abnormalities can vary. Septo-optic dysplasia is often associated with abnormalities of the hypothalamic and other diencephalic structures, and HYPOPITUITARISM.Follicle Stimulating Hormone: A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Follicle-stimulating hormone stimulates GAMETOGENESIS and the supporting cells such as the ovarian GRANULOSA CELLS, the testicular SERTOLI CELLS, and LEYDIG CELLS. FSH consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Diabetes Insipidus, Neurogenic: A genetic or acquired polyuric disorder caused by a deficiency of VASOPRESSINS secreted by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. Clinical signs include the excretion of large volumes of dilute URINE; HYPERNATREMIA; THIRST; and polydipsia. Etiologies include HEAD TRAUMA; surgeries and diseases involving the HYPOTHALAMUS and the PITUITARY GLAND. This disorder may also be caused by mutations of genes such as ARVP encoding vasopressin and its corresponding neurophysin (NEUROPHYSINS).Adrenal Insufficiency: Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.Thyrotropin: A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Thyrotropin stimulates THYROID GLAND by increasing the iodide transport, synthesis and release of thyroid hormones (THYROXINE and TRIIODOTHYRONINE). Thyrotropin consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH; LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Hydrocortisone: The main glucocorticoid secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX. Its synthetic counterpart is used, either as an injection or topically, in the treatment of inflammation, allergy, collagen diseases, asthma, adrenocortical deficiency, shock, and some neoplastic conditions.Luteinizing Hormone: A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Luteinizing hormone regulates steroid production by the interstitial cells of the TESTIS and the OVARY. The preovulatory LUTEINIZING HORMONE surge in females induces OVULATION, and subsequent LUTEINIZATION of the follicle. LUTEINIZING HORMONE consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Thyroid Hormones: Natural hormones secreted by the THYROID GLAND, such as THYROXINE, and their synthetic analogs.Sella Turcica: A bony prominence situated on the upper surface of the body of the sphenoid bone. It houses the PITUITARY GLAND.Craniopharyngioma: A benign pituitary-region neoplasm that originates from Rathke's pouch. The two major histologic and clinical subtypes are adamantinous (or classical) craniopharyngioma and papillary craniopharyngioma. The adamantinous form presents in children and adolescents as an expanding cystic lesion in the pituitary region. The cystic cavity is filled with a black viscous substance and histologically the tumor is composed of adamantinomatous epithelium and areas of calcification and necrosis. Papillary craniopharyngiomas occur in adults, and histologically feature a squamous epithelium with papillations. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch14, p50)Hyponatremia: Deficiency of sodium in the blood; salt depletion. (Dorland, 27th ed)Adenoma, Chromophobe: A benign tumor of the anterior pituitary in which the cells do not stain with acidic or basic dyes.Thyroxine: The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.Diagnostic Techniques, Endocrine: Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the endocrine glands or demonstration of their physiological processes.Pituitary Apoplexy: The sudden loss of blood supply to the PITUITARY GLAND, leading to tissue NECROSIS and loss of function (PANHYPOPITUITARISM). The most common cause is hemorrhage or INFARCTION of a PITUITARY ADENOMA. It can also result from acute hemorrhage into SELLA TURCICA due to HEAD TRAUMA; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; or other acute effects of central nervous system hemorrhage. Clinical signs include severe HEADACHE; HYPOTENSION; bilateral visual disturbances; UNCONSCIOUSNESS; and COMA.Growth Hormone: A polypeptide that is secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, stimulates mitosis, cell differentiation and cell growth. Species-specific growth hormones have been synthesized.Prolactin: A lactogenic hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). It is a polypeptide of approximately 23 kD. Besides its major action on lactation, in some species prolactin exerts effects on reproduction, maternal behavior, fat metabolism, immunomodulation and osmoregulation. Prolactin receptors are present in the mammary gland, hypothalamus, liver, ovary, testis, and prostate.Central Nervous System Cysts: Congenital or acquired cysts of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges which may remain stable in size or undergo progressive enlargement.Parathyroid Hormone: A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body. Parathyroid hormone increases intracellular calcium by promoting the release of CALCIUM from BONE, increases the intestinal absorption of calcium, increases the renal tubular reabsorption of calcium, and increases the renal excretion of phosphates.Acromegaly: A condition caused by prolonged exposure to excessive HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE in adults. It is characterized by bony enlargement of the FACE; lower jaw (PROGNATHISM); hands; FEET; HEAD; and THORAX. The most common etiology is a GROWTH HORMONE-SECRETING PITUITARY ADENOMA. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch36, pp79-80)Hypothalamo-Hypophyseal System: A collection of NEURONS, tracts of NERVE FIBERS, endocrine tissue, and blood vessels in the HYPOTHALAMUS and the PITUITARY GLAND. This hypothalamo-hypophyseal portal circulation provides the mechanism for hypothalamic neuroendocrine (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) regulation of pituitary function and the release of various PITUITARY HORMONES into the systemic circulation to maintain HOMEOSTASIS.Hyperprolactinemia: Increased levels of PROLACTIN in the BLOOD, which may be associated with AMENORRHEA and GALACTORRHEA. Relatively common etiologies include PROLACTINOMA, medication effect, KIDNEY FAILURE, granulomatous diseases of the PITUITARY GLAND, and disorders which interfere with the hypothalamic inhibition of prolactin release. Ectopic (non-pituitary) production of prolactin may also occur. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch36, pp77-8)Pituitary Gland, Anterior: The anterior glandular lobe of the pituitary gland, also known as the adenohypophysis. It secretes the ADENOHYPOPHYSEAL HORMONES that regulate vital functions such as GROWTH; METABOLISM; and REPRODUCTION.Hypogonadism: Condition resulting from deficient gonadal functions, such as GAMETOGENESIS and the production of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES. It is characterized by delay in GROWTH, germ cell maturation, and development of secondary sex characteristics. Hypogonadism can be due to a deficiency of GONADOTROPINS (hypogonadotropic hypogonadism) or due to primary gonadal failure (hypergonadotropic hypogonadism).Gonadal Steroid Hormones: Steroid hormones produced by the GONADS. They stimulate reproductive organs, germ cell maturation, and the secondary sex characteristics in the males and the females. The major sex steroid hormones include ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; and TESTOSTERONE.Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone: A decapeptide that stimulates the synthesis and secretion of both pituitary gonadotropins, LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE. GnRH is produced by neurons in the septum PREOPTIC AREA of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released into the pituitary portal blood, leading to stimulation of GONADOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR PITUITARY GLAND.Snake Bites: Bites by snakes. Bite by a venomous snake is characterized by stinging pain at the wound puncture. The venom injected at the site of the bite is capable of producing a deleterious effect on the blood or on the nervous system. (Webster's 3d ed; from Dorland, 27th ed, at snake, venomous)Adenoma: A benign epithelial tumor with a glandular organization.Suppressor Factors, Immunologic: Proteins, protein complexes, or glycoproteins secreted by suppressor T-cells that inhibit either subsequent T-cells, B-cells, or other immunologic phenomena. Some of these factors have both histocompatibility (I-J) and antigen-specific domains which may be linked by disulfide bridges. They can be elicited by haptens or other antigens and may be mass-produced by hybridomas or monoclones in the laboratory.Glucose Tolerance Test: A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).Blogging: Using an INTERNET based personal journal which may consist of reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks.Glucose: A primary source of energy for living organisms. It is naturally occurring and is found in fruits and other parts of plants in its free state. It is used therapeutically in fluid and nutrient replacement.Chromium: A trace element that plays a role in glucose metabolism. It has the atomic symbol Cr, atomic number 24, and atomic weight 52. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP85-002,1985), chromium and some of its compounds have been listed as known carcinogens.Blood Glucose: Glucose in blood.Glucose Intolerance: A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

The metabolic consequences of thyroxine replacement in patients with central hypothyroidism (CH) need to be evaluated. The aim was to examine the outcome of thyroxine replacement in CH. Adult hypopituitary patients (n = 1595) with and without CH from KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database) were studied before and after 2 years of GH replacement. CH patients (CH, n = 1080) were compared with TSH sufficient patients (TSHsuff n = 515) as one group and divided by thyroxine dose/kg/day into tertiles (CHlow-mid-high). Anthropometry, fasting glucose, glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c), blood pressure, lipids, IGF-I SDS, quality of life and morbidity were studied. Analyses were standardized for gender, age, number and types of pituitary insufficiencies, stimulated GH peak, age at GH deficiency onset, aetiologies and, when appropriate, for weight and GH dose. At baseline, TSHsuff patients did not differ from CH or CHmid in any outcome. CHlow (a parts per thousand currency sign1.18 mu g ...
PROP1 (Prophet of PIT-1) mutations are a very common explanation for the distinctly uncommon phenotype of MPHD. Studies from Switzerland, Poland, and Russia indicate that loss of function mutations are responsible in the majority of cases with a recessive inheritance and about half of the cases with sporadic MPHD. The proportion of sporadic cases that can be explained by PROP1 mutations is even higher when a selection is made for those who have subnormal TSH responses to thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) stimulation. The most common types of mutation involve one or two base pair deletions in the second of three exons. These deletions cause frame shifts and early transcriptional termination, rendering the mutant proteins incapable of binding to promoter sites or activating transcription of target genes. Missense, nonsense, and splice site mutations have also been described. The hormonal phenotypes associated with PROP1 mutations differ in several respects from those associated with POU1F1 ...

Background: Lymphocytic hypophysitis and Sheehan s syndrome are rare disorders predominantely affecting women in the peripartum period. Patients usually present with various degrees of hypopituitarism and/or symptoms of a pituitary mass lesion.. Material and methods: We present two case-histories of postpartum hypopituitarism. We have also performed a review of literature from Medline and Pubmed databases.. Results and interpretation: Sheehan s syndrome is a pituitary necrosis due to hypotension during an obstetric bleeding. Lymphocytic hypophysitis is a chronic inflammatory process of the anterior pituitary gland, where the pathogenesis is believed to be autoimmune. The diagnoses should be considered when women present peripartum with non-specific symptoms related to varying deficiencies of anterior pituitary hormones, and/or headache and/or visual disturbances.. The treatment of hypopituitarism mainly ...
Sheehans syndrome, also known as postpartum pituitary gland necrosis, is hypopituitarism (decreased functioning of the pituitary gland), caused by ischemic necrosis due to blood loss and hypovolemic shock during and after childbirth. The various signs and symptoms in Sheehans syndrome are caused by damage to the pituitary, which causes a decrease in one or more hormones it normally secretes (see Pathophysiology section). Since the pituitary controls many glands in the endocrine system, partial or complete loss of a variety of functions may result. Most common initial symptoms of Sheehans syndrome are agalactorrhea (absence of lactation) and/or difficulties with lactation. Many women also report amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea after delivery. In some cases, a woman with Sheehan syndrome might be relatively asymptomatic, and the diagnosis is not made until years later, with features of hypopituitarism. Such features include secondary hypothyroidism with ...
Hypopituitarism in Children What is hypopituitarism? Hypopituitarism, also called an underactive pituitary gland, is a condition that affects the anterior (front) lobe of the pituitary gland - usually resulting in a partial or complete loss of functioning of that lobe. The resulting symptoms depend on which hormones are no longer being produced by the gland. Because the pituitary gland affects the other endocrine organs, effects of hypopituitarism may be gradual, or sudden and dramatic. What causes hypo...

Because the pituitary gland affects the other endocrine organs, effects of hypopituitarism may be gradual, or sudden and dramatic. What causes hypo...
phdthesis{1a2f457d-a0f0-40b9-a3b2-daf2e925adf8, abstract = {Premature atherosclerosis, cardiovascular risk factors and increased cardiovascular mortality have been shown in patients with hypopituitarism on conventional hormone treatment, but without growth hormone (GH) replacement. The aims of paper I-III were to investigate separately the risks for cerebrovascular and cardiac mortality as well as the incidence of cardiovascular disease in patients with hypopituitarism and to assess the long-term prognosis for patients with craniopharyngioma. GH replacement has been associated with an impairment of glucose tolerance and the objectives of paper IV-V were to investigate whether individualized GH replacement therapy could avoid such a deterioration. There was a 1.75-fold increased cardiovascular mortality in 344 hypopituitary patients operated for a pituitary tumour compared to the general population. The risk for death in ...

In this report, we showed the subject with hypothalamic hypopituitarism which was diagnosed based on the following findings: excess and delayed reaction of ACTH in CRH load test, delayed reaction of LH and FSH in LHRH load test, poor GH reaction in arginine load test. Although we understood that it would be important to perform insulin tolerance test in order to reconfirm the dysfunction of the hypothalamus in this subject, we failed to obtain the agreement from this subject about the insulin load test due to the risk of the occurrence of hypoglycemia. It was reasonable that this subject was very afraid of the occurrence of hypoglycemia because she experienced severe hypoglycemia repeatedly. Therefore, we decided not to perform insulin tolerance test in this subject. The GH releasing hormone + arginine (GHRH + ARG) test is the best method to accurately evaluate GH secretion. However, according to the Japanese guideline for adult GH deficiency (The hypothalamic-pituitary ...
Context: The impact of long-term GH replacement on cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus in hypopituitary patients is unknown. Objective: The incidence of nonfatal stroke and cardiac events, and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) and cardioprotective medication were compared between cohorts of GH-deficient (GHD) patients and population controls. Design and Participants: The incidence of nonfatal stroke and cardiac events was estimated retrospectively from questionnaires in 750 GHD patients and 2314 matched population controls. A prevalence of T2D and cardioprotective medication was recorded at the distribution of questionnaires. Time since first pituitary deficiency to start of GH therapy was 4 and 2 yr, and time on GH therapy was 6 yr for GHD women and men, respectively. Results: Lifelong incidence of nonfatal stroke was tripled in GHD women and doubled in GHD men, but a decline was seen in both genders during periods after first pituitary hormone ...

Hypothalamic slices containing the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA) were prepared from 6- to 8-day-old rats and maintained in stationary culture for up to 35 days in order to analyse how well the melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) neurons survived. As previously reported for other brain areas, this method yielded a long-term well-preserved organotypic organization. Light- and electron-microscopic investigations showed that differentiation continued and that synaptic contacts developed in vitro. After a period of elimination of damaged cells and fibres, most of the remaining neurons and glial cells retained a normal morphology throughout the culture period. MCH neurons, in particular, survived well as attested by the strong immunocytochemical and in situ hybridization signals still observed after several weeks. In a comparison with the day of explantation, competitive reverse transcription/polymerase chain reaction demonstrated the remarkable stability of the level of MCH mRNA at least until ...
Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) and orexin-A are orexigenic peptidergic neurotransmitters produced primarily in the lateral hypothalamus. Because two other hypothalamic peptides, neuropeptide Y and agouti-related peptide, increase food intake by a mechanism that depends on activation of opioid receptors, we assessed whether MCH or orexin-A also elicits food intake via opioid receptor activation. A dose of naloxone (0.3 mg/kg, ip) that had no effect on its own reduced the acute orexigenic effect of third ventricular (i3vt) orexin-A (3 ng/rat). However, this same dose of naloxone had no effect on i3vt MCH (5 microg/rat)-induced hyperphagia. Because the opioid system has also been linked to food selection, we investigated whether MCH or orexin-A alters food choice when rats have simultaneous access to two diets differing in the relative amounts of fat and carbohydrate. Whereas i3vt MCH stimulated intake of both diets and did not alter food choice, i3vt orexin-A stimulated intake of only the ...
Cystic sellar lesions are a rare cause of hypopituitarism and extremely rare in the pediatric age group. The differential diagnosis is large and includes both primary pituitary abscesses and cystic components on pre-existing lesions, such as adenoma, craniopharyngioma, Rathkes cleft cyst, leukemia, granulomatous disease and lymphocytic hypophysitis. In the absence of a definitive diagnosis, treatment can be challenging. We report a case of a 15-year-old female, who presented with headaches, altered consciousness and diplopia after a molar extraction, for which she had received oral antibiotics. Broad-spectrum i.v. antibiotics were given for presumed meningitis. Blood cultures failed to identify pathogens. Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging showed a pituitary cystic lesion. Endocrine studies revealed abnormal pituitary function. In the absence of a therapeutic response, the patient underwent a transsphenoidal biopsy of the pituitary gland, which yielded a purulent liquid, ...
We read with interest the report by Mitchell et al1 of 4 cases of ectopic posterior pituitary lobe and periventricular heterotopia on MR imaging studies. The authors suggested that ectopic posterior pituitary lobe with growth hormone deficiency is part of a spectrum associated with septo-optic dysplasia and concluded that the coexistence of periventricular heterotopia dysplasia implies a common underlying genetic mechanism. Further, in 1 case, they found the presence of a heterozygous HESX1 mutation, a gene associated with ectopic posterior pituitary lobe and septo-optic dysplasia, and suggested that this gene is important in the development of both ectopic posterior pituitary lobe and periventricular heterotopia.. We report a case of a 4-year-old boy with a history of seizures. The patient had an episode of convulsive seizure in March 2006, with a left focal onset.

Case series A 15 month old boy was born at 33 weeks of gestation. During infancy, he was noted to have global developmental delay secondary to cerebral atrophy and isolated growth hormone deficiency. He was not able to pull himself to standing position but after commencing growth hormone replacement, he demonstrated a dramatic improvement in his gross motor skills and was able to stand independently and walk with support.. A 4 year old boy with global developmental delay and was unable to stand independently. On investigation for short stature, he was noted to have isolated growth hormone deficiency and was commenced on growth hormone replacement. Three months later, he was noted to have made significant improvement in his muscle tone and general alertness. He was able to walk unaided for short distances.. A 10 year old boy with developmental delay and isolated growth hormone deficiency was commenced on growth ...
Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) is a clinically heterogeneous disorder that is diagnosed on the presence of at least two of the following conditions: optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH), hypopituitarism and absence of the septum pellucidum (Webb and Dattani, 2010). The severity of these features varies widely in SOD, which has an incidence of 1 in 10,000 live births (Patel et al., 2006). ONH is the most common finding in SOD, and manifests as a thinning of the optic nerve as it exits the eye, resulting in insufficient photo-transduction to the brain and, in many instances, blindness (Morishima and Aranoff, 1986; Cemeroglu et al., 2015). Variable pituitary dysfunction, including isolated growth hormone deficiency, central hypothyroidism, and panhypopituitarism is also observed in individuals with SOD, with decreased levels of one or more pituitary hormones being diagnosed by two years of age (Cemeroglu et al., 2015). Cognitive delay and seizure ...
Both GH-deficiency and type 1 diabetes are associated with low IGF-I levels. The aim with our studies was to develop a dose titration model to obtain physiological IGF-I levels in growth hormone deficiency and to evaluate the relationship between glycaemic control and IGF-I in diabetes. First we established reference values for insulin like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and insulin like growth factor bindingprotein-1 (IGFBP-1) from 101 women and 101 men randomly selected from the population registry. No gender differences in IGF-I levels were fmmd. IGF-1 decreases with advancing age in both sexes, whereas IGFBP-1 increases with age.. Titrating the GH dose according to population based reference values of IGF-I might be a way to obtain a fairly physiological substitution dose of GH. We hypothesised that a safe and probably effective maintenance dose of GH should increase IGF-I to the mean or slightly below the mean according to age adjusted reference levels. Eighteen adult hypopituitary patients ...

Hypopituitarism is a rare presentation of Burkitts lymphoma (BL). The purpose of this report is to present a case of BL presenting with panhypopituitarism and to review other case reports of lymphoma presenting with pituitary dysfunction to highlight the distinguishing features of these cases from other benign aetiologies of pituitary dysfunction such as non-functioning pituitary adenomas. We reviewed a total of 11 cases of lymphoma presenting with pituitary dysfunction published from 1998 to 2013 including the present case. The demographics, clinical presentations, laboratory features, radiological findings, histological diagnosis, treatment administered and outcomes were described. Of the total number of patients, 45.5% of the cases had diffuse large B-cell lymphoma while 27.3% had BL. Anterior pituitary dysfunction was more common than posterior pituitary dysfunction at presentation. The other common associated presenting symptoms were painful ...
Biochemical growth hormone deficiency is prevalent among human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients, but if this condition is clinically relevant remains challenging. The aim is to prospectively compare the growth hormone deficiency/insulin-like growth factor-1 status of 71 human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with impaired growth hormone response to growth hormone releasing hormone + Arginine with that of 65 hypopituitary patients affected by a true growth hormone deficiency secondary to pituitary disease. The main outcomes were: basal serum growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor-1, insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3, growth hormone peak and area under the curve after growth hormone response to growth hormone releasing hormone + Arginine test, body mass index, waist and hip circumference, and ...
Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD), also known as de-Morsier syndrome, is a rare disorder characterized by any combination of optic nerve hypoplasia, pituitary gland hypoplasia, and midline abnormalities of the brain including absence of the septum pellucidum and corpus callosum dysgenesis. The variable presentation of SOD includes visual, neurologic, and/or hypothalamic-pituitary endocrine defects. The unclear aetiology of a large proportion of SOD cases underscores the importance of identifying novel SOD-associated genes. To identify the disease-causing gene in a male infant with neonatal hypoglycaemia, dysmorphic features, and hypoplasia of the optic nerve and corpus callosum, we designed a targeted next-generation sequencing panel for brain morphogenesis defects. We identified a novel hemizygous deletion, c.6355 + 4_6355 + 5delAG, in intron 38 of the FLNA gene that the patient had inherited from his mother. cDNA studies showed that this variant results in the production of 3 aberrant FLNA transcripts, the

Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a medical condition due to not enough growth hormone (GH). Generally the most noticeable symptom is a short height. In newborns there may be low blood sugar or a small penis. In adults there may be decreased muscle mass, high cholesterol levels, or poor bone density. GHD can be present at birth or develop later in life. Causes may include genetics, trauma, infections, tumors, or radiation therapy. Genes that may be involved include GH1, GHRHR, or BTK. In a third of cases no cause is apparent. The underlying mechanism generally involves problems with the pituitary gland. Some cases are associated with a lack of other pituitary hormones, in which case it is known as combined pituitary hormone deficiency. Diagnosis involves blood tests to measure growth hormone levels. Treatment is by growth hormone replacement. The frequency of the condition is unclear. Most ...

The molecular basis of a significant number of cases of isolated growth hormone deficiency remains unknown. We describe three sisters affected with severe isolated growth hormone deficiency and pituitary hypoplasia caused by biallelic mutations in the RNPC3 gene, which codes for a minor spliceosome protein required for U11/U12 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) formation and splicing of U12‐type introns. We found anomalies in U11/U12 di‐snRNP formation and in splicing of multiple U12‐type introns in patient cells. Defective transcripts include preprohormone convertases SPCS2 and SPCS3 and actin‐related ARPC5L genes, which are candidates for the somatotroph‐restricted dysfunction. The reported novel mechanism for familial growth hormone deficiency demonstrates that general mRNA processing defects of the minor spliceosome can lead to very narrow tissue‐specific consequences ...
Diet is one of the main reasons people develop an iodine deficiency and thus contract secondary hypothyroidism. Iodine levels in the population of the United States, have fallen by fifty percent over the last fifty years. This is largely due to iodine being removed from American foods and soil. There was also the scare that too much salt (iodine occurs naturally in sea salt) causes health problems such as heart attacks. The result is a diet low in iodine.. The results of iodine deficiency are varied and include a sluggish metabolism and weight gain, infertility, compromised immune functionality, and an increase in children who are intellectually challenged at birth. There is also a related increase in instances of prostate cancer, breast cancer, and fibrocystic breast disease.. This is in sharp contrast with a country such as Japan where the average iodine intake per person per year is up to 100 times higher, while the occurrence of secondary hypothyroidism and its associated symptoms is ...
Preparation of hcrt and melanin-concentrating hormone riboprobes.Hcrt cDNA was inserted into the pBCSK+ vector (Stratagene, La Jolla, CA) atNotI and EcoRI sites. Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) cDNA was inserted into the pBCSK+ vector at BamHI andEcoRI sites. Both hcrt and MCH plasmids were linearized using EcoRI (Life Technologies, Gaithersburg, MD). Radiolabeled hcrt riboprobes were synthesized by in vitro transcription of a full-length (569 nucleotides) rat hcrt probe using T3 polymerase (Ambion, Austin, TX) and [35S]UTP (DuPont NEN, Boston, MA). For the colorimetric procedure, the hcrt and MCH riboprobes were transcribedin vitro following the standard digoxigenin (DIG)-labeling reaction protocol from Boehringer Mannheim (Indianapolis, IN) using 10× transcription buffer and T3 RNA polymerase (Life Technologies). Riboprobes were then purified by ethanol precipitation and stored at −70°C.. Estimation of DIG-labeled riboprobe yields. The yield of the DIG-labeled hcrt and ...
125I][Phe13, Tyr19]MCH Binding. The membranes of CHO-K1 cells expressing the human MCHR1 were suspended in 25 mM HEPES buffer, pH 7.4, containing 5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM CaCl2, 0.5 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, and 0.2% bovine serum albumin at a protein concentration of 10 μg/ml. Membranes were incubated with [125I][Phe13, Tyr19]MCH (0.1 nM) for 120 min at 25°C. The reaction was terminated by rapid filtration under vacuum through a UniFilter GF/C microplate (PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences) presoaked with 0.3% polyethylenimine, after which the filters were washed three times with 0.3 ml of phosphate-buffered saline containing 0.5 M NaCl, using a UniFliter96 harvester (PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences).

Silva et al. (2009) published in the journal Nature that this same receptor, foxa2, is found in the hypothalamus (of mice) and it directly effects the hunger reflex. What they did was to take normal and genetically obese mice, fast them, and inject some of them with insulin to put them into the fed state. They then sacrificed the mice and dissected their brains, using an antibody-based stain to identify neurons that were positive for foxa2 and orexin and melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH). Orexin and MCH are known to be associated with feeding and, incidentally, sleep behaviour (Willie, 2001). From their results the authors concluded that the production of the neuropeptides orexin and melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) were promoted by the foxa2 receptor (but only with insulin attached to it). One of the stronger pieces of evidence was that foxa2 was found in the cytoplasm of the mouse neurons when in the fasted state but in the nucleus when in the fed state. Transcription ...

Introduction: Orthodenticle homeobox 2 (OTX2) is a transcription factor that plays a critical role in brain and eye development. Heterozygous deleterious mutations in this gene lead to eye malformation such as anophthalmia, microphthalmia, coloboma or optic nerve hypoplasia, normal or hypoplastic pituitary gland and normal or ectopic posterior pituitary gland with isolated growth hormone deficiency or combined pituitary hormone deficiency. There is no genotype phenotype correlation. Patients with heterozygous OTX2 deletion without eye or pituitary development anomaly have never been reported.. We report on a 3,2 years old boy with a de novo heterozygous deletion of OTX2 without hormonal deficiency or eye malformation.. Case Report: A boy of 3,2 years- old -boy presented to our pediatric endocrinology unit for short stature. He was born at term after an uneventful pregnancy with 3,010 kg and 50 cm. His development was normal. He has familial Mediterranean fever. Parents are ...

Department of Medicine, St. Thomas Hospital, London, United Kingdom.. The long term effects of GH replacement in adult GH-deficient (GHD) patients have not yet been clarified. We studied 21 GHD adults who originally took part in a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial of GH treatment in 1987. After completion of that trial, 10 patients received continuous GH replacement for the subsequent 10 yr, whereas 11 did not. A group of 11 age- and sex-matched normal controls were also studied in 1987 and 1997. Lean body mass, as assessed by total body potassium measurement and computed tomography scanning of the dominant thigh, increased in the GH-treated group (P , 0.01 for both) only (P , 0.05 between groups for total body potassium). Low density lipoprotein cholesterol decreased in the GH-treated group (P , ...

Pituitary adenomas are found in 10%-25% of unselected autopsy series and are evident in about 10% of asymptomatic individuals by magnetic resonance imaging. Diagnosis of pituitary disorders is often delayed by lack of awareness and the subtlety of symptoms and signs. Hypopituitarism is suspected when peripheral hormone concentrations are low without an elevation in the corresponding pituitary tropic hormone(s). Severe adult-onset growth-hormone deficiency results in reduced muscle mass, increased fat mass and diminished quality of life, which are reversed by growth hormone replacement therapy. While trans-sphenoidal surgery remains first-line treatment for acromegaly, drug treatment has an important role in controlling residual growth-hormone excess and, in some circumstances, as first-line treatment. Dopamine-agonist therapy (cabergoline or bromocriptine) ...

The most frequent injury sustained by U.S. service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan is mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), or concussion, by far most often caused by blast waves from improvised explosive devices or other explosive ordnance. TBI from all causes gives rise to chronic neuroendocrine disorders with an estimated prevalence of 25-50%. The current study expands upon our earlier finding that chronic pituitary gland dysfunction occurs with a similarly high frequency after blast-related concussions. We measured circulating hormone levels and accessed demographic and testing data from two groups of male veterans with hazardous duty experience in Iraq or Afghanistan. Veterans in the mTBI group had experienced one or more blast-related concussions. Members of the deployment control (DC) group encountered similar deployment conditions but had no history of blast-related mTBI. Twelve of 39 (31%) of the mTBI participants and three of 20 (15%) veterans in the DC group screened ...
A growth hormone deficiency is caused due to disorders in the pituitary gland - the gland which is responsible for the production of growth hormone. What can cause the pituitary gland to become dysfunctional? Age, disease, head trauma, environmental pollution and sedentary lifestyle have all been shown to affect this delicate gland.. When the production of growth hormone by the pituitary gland reduces, linear growth in adults becomes slower than usual. While growth hormone is essential to stimulate regular growth in children, it is vital for the maintenance of the right bone, muscle, and body fat levels in adults. Low levels of growth hormone can lead to emotional disturbances poor motivation and tiredness. Cholesterol levels in an individual can also be negatively affected by a growth hormone deficiency.. There is no particular age when the deficiency of growth hormone may arise in adults. ...

The ICMAb I-45 showed a pan-islet reactivity similar to the reactivity of islet cell autoantibodies. The target antigen of the ICMAb I-45 demonstrated a neuroendocrine distribution. Single step immunoaffinity purification of I-45 antigen using I-45 monoclonal antibody immunoaffinity matrix yielded a 68kD protein. The specificity of the immunoaffinity purified 68kD protein was further demonstrated by the lack of binding of this protein to immunoaffinity columns of irrelevant monoclonal antibodies.

... is a rare condition that often causes excess urination. This section of the eMedTV library explains what causes this condition and talks about some of the treatment options that are available.
Because GH has a very short half life and is secreted in a pulsatile manner, mainly at night and after vigorous exercise, the measurement of a single growth hormone level is a useless exercise. The most stringent test for growth hormone deficiency is to measure growth hormone levels every 10 to 20 minutes in order to obtain an integrated 24-hour GH profile. As this is impractical outside the research setting, the recommended screening test for AGHD is the measurement of an IGF 1 level. The levels of IGF-1 (which has a half life of about 22 hours) are stable throughout the day with minimal diurnal variation and thus measurement of an IGF 1 level does not require the subject to be in fasting state. A low IGF-I level, age-adjusted, is a very specific indicator of AGHD. However its sensitivity is poor, especially in the setting of pituitary disease. In this situation there are often coexistent endocrine deficiencies as part of a syndrome of ...

Associated developmental anomalies: A wide spectrum of anomalies may occur in association with encephaloceles. Some of these abnormalities are secondary to encephalocele development; others represent primary noncontiguous embryonic malformations (8). Associated anomalies include hydrocephalus, arachnoid cysts, absent corpus callosum, orofacial clefting, craniosynostosis, Dandy-Walker and Chiari malformations, ectrodactyly, hemifacial microsomia, hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction, Klippel-Feil anomaly, iniencephaly, and myelomeningocele (8, 18, 21, 23, 28, 32, 33). In addition, cases of atretic encephalocele have been reported with associated extra- or intracranial teratomas or lipomas (1, 6, 30). ...
Erythrocytes from growth hormone-deficient children (GHd-children) (n=10) showed a statistically significant increase in insulin binding at low unlabeled insulin concentrations, together with a threefold decrease in apparent receptor affinity, as compared to control children (C) (n=11). Scatchard analysis of the binding data using the two-site model revealed that both the receptor concentration R1 [GHd-children 0.10±0.01 ng/ml and C 0.03±0.002 ng/ml] and the dissociation constant KD1 [GHd-children (0.48±0.05)×10−9M and C (0.19±0.01)×10−9M] for high affinitylow capacity sites were significantly increased in erythrocytes from GHd-children, while neither receptor concentrations (R2) nor the dissociation constant (KD2) for low affinity-high capacity sites proved to be altered. These events were accompanied by a normal sensitivity to insulin as well as glucose tolerance in the GHd-group. The meaning of the increased insulin binding with normal insulin sensitivity in GH-deficiency is ...
Pituitary cancer is characterized by the abnormal growth in the pituitary gland. It affects the functioning of the pituitary gland and may cause an increased or decreased level of pituitary hormone secretions within the body. The small pituitary cancer treatment is accessible through noninvasive treatment or medicines. But, a large pituitary cancer treatment is challenging to treat because of its complex nature.
The metyrapone test has been improved by specific measurement of plasma 11-deoxycortisol. This simplified method measures 11-deoxycortisol and cortisol in a sample of 0.1 ml of plasma after a standard dose of metyrapone. In normal patients, after metyrapone ingestion, plasma 11-deoxycortisol rises from a base line of 0.8 ± 0.8 µg/100 ml to 16.8 ± 4.4 µg/100 ml, and plasma cortisol falls from 13.5 ± 5.1 µg/100 ml to 3.3 ± 2.8 µg/100 ml. After metyrapone 11-deoxycortisol is reduced only in adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH) deficiency. Patients with hypopituitarism or chronic corticoid therapy and 9 of 12 acromegalics had subnormal levels. Patients with the "empty sella" syndrome or trophic hormone deficiency other than ACTH had normal levels. In primary hypothyroidism postmetyrapone 11-deoxycortisol is significantly greater than in normals. This difference is thought to be caused by delayed metabolic clearance of the steroid. Simultaneous measurement of serum cortisol affords an ...

The increasing recognition of pituitary disorders and their impact on quality of life and longevity has made understanding of this small gland a subject of paramount importance. Pituitary pathology has seen many significant studies that indicate progress in identification and classification of pituitary lesions, as well as improved management strategies for patients. In this review, we outline six major areas of advances: (i) changes in terminology from adenoma to pituitary neuroendocrine tumour; (ii) reclassification of hormone-negative tumours based on transcription factor expression that defines lineage; (iii) updates in new pathogenetic mechanisms, including those that underlie rare lesions such as X-LAG and pituitary blastoma; (iv) clarification of hypophysitis due to immunotherapy, xanthomatous hypophysitis due to rupture of a Rathkes cleft cyst and IgG4 disease as the cause of inflammatory pseudotumour; (v) the consolidation of pituicytoma variants, including spindle cell oncocytoma ...
Many people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions work with an endocrinologist. And its not uncommon for me to consult with someone who is intimidated by their endocrinologist. In other words, they are afraid to say whats on their mind and dont want to upset their doctor. This is especially true with those people who have Graves Disease, although I also see it at times with some people who have hypothyroidism and Hashimotos Thyroiditis. Youll probably be disappointed to learn that Im not really going to teach you how to hypnotize your endocrinologist (although that would be cool), but I am going to give you a few tips that hopefully will help you feel more at ease when speaking with your doctor.. Most of what I discuss below is common sense, but the reason why I put this blog post together is because every week there are at least one or two patients who tell me they are intimated by speaking with their endocrinologist. They are concerned because most endocrinologists arent open ...
In 1970 a 20 year old woman presented with a pituitary chromophobe adenoma for which she underwent transfrontal pituitary surgery. In 1978 she had to be reoperated on because of local tumour recurrence, resulting in hypopituitarism. Bromocriptine (5 mg/day) was given for 15 years, but the plasma prolactin levels remained elevated. In 2000 the patient presented with signs and symptoms suggestive of a spinal cord lesion at the mid-thoracic level. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan showed an extensive leptomeningeal mass extending from the brainstem to L5, with a thoracic syringomyelia at the T7-T8 level. The plasma prolactin level was very high (5114 microg/l). A biopsy showed the presence of a metastasised prolactinoma.On administration of high dose cabergoline, 0.5 mg twice a day orally, the plasma prolactin levels decreased within one month and then normalised within 26 months. Tumour load reduced considerably but unfortunately, her signs and symptoms did not improve. This case ...

The Pituitary Network Association (PNA) is a nonprofit organization which was formed in 1992 in Los Angeles, California, as the Acromegaly Network Association. Patients referred to PNA receive information on pituitary adenomas and peer-counseling. The lack of clear and concise written information about the various pituitary adenomas, and the difficult and intricate illnesses and afflictions associated with the many types of adenomas led the Association to engage some of the worlds leading scientists, endocrinologists, and neurosurgeons to write information booklets and brochures, in laymans language. Publications are now available form PNA on Acromegaly, Cushings, Prolactinomas, and pediatric tumors. The Pituitary Patient Resource Guide is available in its 4th Edition.

Purpose : Mutations in PNPLA6 result in neurodegenerative disorders with congenital, childhood, or adult onset due to dysfunction of the encoded protein, Neuropathy Target Esterase (NTE). These include Spastic Paraplegia type 39, Gordon-Holmes syndrome, Boucher-Neuhauser syndrome, Laurence-Moon syndrome, and Oliver-McFarlane syndrome. Here, we evaluate the natural history of retinal degeneration and systemic findings in PNPLA6-related disorders. Methods : Twenty-three patients with clinical diagnosis of a PNPLA6-related disorder and/or biallelic PNPLA6 mutations were enrolled. DNA was analyzed for PNPLA6 mutations by Sanger sequencing or whole exome sequencing. Retinal phenotypes were analyzed by visual acuity and color vision testing, fundus photos, autofluorescence, optical coherence tomography (OCT), visual fields, and electroretinography (ERG). Brain MRI and hormone concentrations were obtained to assess hypopituitarism and spinocerebellar phenotypes. Results : Patient ...

The birth defect known as optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH), characterized by an underdeveloped optic nerve, has emerged as the single leading cause of childhood blindness and visual impairment in the United States and Europe. Since the first description of ONH, research has made tremendous progress in understanding the clinical significance of ONH. It is now clear that ONH is a pervasive disease of child neurodevelopment associated with overall miswiring of the brain that results in visual impairment and profound systemic and functional morbidity. A review of the disease summarizes the clinical profile associated with ONH. The prenatal determinants of ONH are largely unknown owing to a lack of systematic research in a large sample of cases. A review of literature identified a broad spectrum of suggested risk factors born primarily out of anecdotal reports and highly selective case samples. This dissertation includes two analyses aimed at clarifying the prenatal risk profile. The first is a ...
