• lesions
  • In this brief overview, the presentation, classification, and general investigation of pituitary lesions is followed by a discussion of the diagnosis and management of specific secretory subtypes. (bmj.com)
  • gonadotropins
  • The clinical manifestations seen in patients with deficiencies of pituitary hormones that control target glands (ACTH, TSH, and gonadotropins) are generally those of primary deficiencies of target gland hormones, with a few important exceptions. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • A single injection of LUPRON DEPOT-3 Month 11.25 mg will result in an initial stimulation followed by a prolonged suppression of pituitary gonadotropins. (nih.gov)
  • endocrine
  • Recent research has focused on a defect at the CTLA-4 gene which, coupled with other factors, may result in autoimmunity primarily focusing on certain endocrine glands including the pituitary and thyroid. (wikipedia.org)
  • defects
  • An exaggerated "physiological" trophic response to prolonged hypothyroidism presenting with visual field defects is well described but is, like pituitary carcinoma, very rare. (bmj.com)
  • anticoagulant
  • The physiopathology is not completely clear, and precipitating factors, such as major surgeries, anticoagulant use or pituitary dynamic tests, can be found in up to 40% of patients. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • optic chiasm
  • On admission day 30, pituitary MR images demonstrated an optic chiasm, and the right optic tract showed isointensity on T1- and T2-weighted images ( Fig 3 A , -B ). Swelling of both optic tracts was decreased compared with MR images of admission days 1 or 2. (ajnr.org)
  • impairment
  • Follow up and optimisation of pituitary hormone replacement is also relatively straightforward, but management of visual impairment, reduced fertility, coarsened facial features, arthritis, obesity, headaches, and obstructive sleep apnoea is often much more troublesome. (bmj.com)
  • Apoplexy also includes hemorrhaging with the gland and accompanying neurological problems such as confusion, headache, and impairment of consciousness. (wikipedia.org)
  • glands
  • Treatment==inflammation resolves usually after several months of glucocorticoid treatment A large scale study on cadavers done in Sweden, performed biopsies on hundreds of pituitary glands. (wikipedia.org)
