  • Craniopharyngioma

    Of the seventeen (63%) patients presenting with varying degrees of bitemporal hemianopsia, all had improvement in vision postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 38% .01 Overweight 2% 5% .147 5% 11% .05 Grade 1 obesity 12% 9% .762 24% 23% .895 Grade 2 obesity 10% 11% .879 54% 28% .05 Mean time (95% CI) of follow-up for ERS: 103 months[doi.org] In this paper we report a case of mixed pituitary adenoma/craniopharyngioma observed in a 75-year-old woman presenting with diplopia and slight increase of serum prolactin[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    A 48-year-old man with a prolactin-secreting macroadenoma treated with cabergoline presented with progressive bitemporal hemianopsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary empty sella syndrome (ESS) shares with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) high intracranial pressure (ICP) and association with obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to increase after thyrotrophin releasing hormone (TRH, 500 microgram), confirmed the diagnosis of panhypopituitarism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acromegaly

    In addition, bitemporal hemianopsia was observed on campimetry. After further examination, the patient was diagnosed with acromegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High AG/UAG ratios are linked with type 2 diabetes, obesity, and hyperphagia (e.g., in Prader-Willi syndrome).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 50-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with headache, mild acromegaly, and bitemporal hemianopsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Periodic assessment of the visual fields showed an increase in size of the blind spots after 10 weeks and a moderate bitemporal hemianopsia after 22 weeks, which improved[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] you the latest clinical guidance on all aspects of diagnosis and treatment for the full range of endocrine and metabolism disorders, including new information on diabetes, obesity[books.google.com] In the three women effectively treated with pyridoxine, the galactorrhea returned, serum prolactin levels increased, and the menses ceased after discontinuing pyridoxine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Prolactinoma

    Clinically, the patient was found to have hypogonadism and bitemporal hemianopsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This 33-year-old woman was admitted to the internal medicine outpatient clinic for irregular menses, obesity, hirsutism and infertility, and hyperprolactinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Causes of high prolactin levels in the blood: Primary Hypothyroidism : this is due to increased TRH levels which is known to stimulate prolactin levels Renal failure : prolactin[houstonendocrine.com]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    Here, we report the case of a 67-year-old woman who presented with bitemporal hemianopsia and visual impairment accompanied by mildly elevated prolactin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: This study does not confirm overweight or obesity as risk factors for meningioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some women produce breast milk even though they are not breastfeeding ( galactorrhea ) because of a related increase in prolactin.[merck.com]

  • Pituitary Neoplasm

    Cushing-like effects, diplopia, bitemporal hemianopsia and diabetes insipidus are some of many symptoms that can be encountered.[symptoma.com] Increased production of prolactin can cause abnormal milk production, irregular menses and infertility in women; for men, increased prolactin levels can cause impotence, infertility[acromegaly.org] Women classically present in the second or third decade of life with symptoms related to increased prolactin levels such as amenorrhea and galactorrhea (Forbes-Albright syndrome[med.virginia.edu]
