538 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Pituitary

  • Trichomegaly-Retina Pigmentary Degeneration-Dwarfism Syndrome

    OMIM : 57 Oliver-McFarlane syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by trichomegaly, severe chorioretinal atrophy and multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies,[malacards.org] Definition A rare autosomal recessive, congenital syndrome characterized by trichomegaly, severe chorioretinal atrophy and multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies.[uniprot.org] Oliver-McFarlane syndrome (OMCS) [MIM:275400]: A rare autosomal recessive, congenital syndrome characterized by trichomegaly, severe chorioretinal atrophy and multiple pituitary[genecards.org]

  • Cerebellar Atrophy

    Other supratentorial abnormalities may be present such as cortical atrophy, white matter lesions, a small anterior pituitary gland, and nonvisualization of the posterior pituitary[ajnr.org] In addition, patient 5 had diffuse cortical-subcortical atrophy. The anterior pituitary gland was small in patients 4 and 5.[ajnr.org] Sagittal midline T1-weighted MR image shows slight cerebellar atrophy of the superior part of the vermis and no demonstrable posterior pituitary bright spot.[ajnr.org]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Secondary adrenal insufficiency most often results from a pituitary tumor that destroys a part of the pituitary gland or from surgical removal or radiation of the pituitary[healthcommunities.com] Secondary adrenal insufficiency results from hypopituitarism due to hypothalamic-pituitary disease or suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis by steroid therapy.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] With prolonged suppression, the adrenal glands atrophy (physically shrink), and can take months to recover full function after discontinuation of the exogenous glucocorticoid[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    The appearance is often associated with complete normality but may indicate a pituitary tumour, atrophy of the pituitary gland, harmless herniation of the arachnoid layer[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Partial empty sella syndrome with an atrophied pituitary gland is seen in primary neuroendocrinopathies such as growth hormone deficiency, primary hypothyroidism, central[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequent destruction and flattening of the pituitary with development of pan-hypopituitarism may have resulted in the atrophy of the pituitary gland, which created space[edmcasereports.com]

  • Sheehan Syndrome

    Within several weeks, the swollen pituitary gland regresses and is confined to the pituitary fossa, followed by further pituitary gland atrophy for several months.[ajnr.org] In a chronic phase of the disease, neuroimaging typically shows atrophy of the pituitary and empty sella [ 16 , 17 ].[omicsonline.org] The necrotic pituitary gland will display impaired function, atrophy and scarring.[symptoma.com]
