347 Possible Causes for Hypothalamic Insufficiency

  • Hypersensitivity

    Standard clinical methods assessed the patient's hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] presented for evaluation of adrenal insufficiency prompted by low plasma cortisol levels and multiple unexplained symptoms but without clinical evidence of glucocorticoid insufficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypogonadism

    Hypogonadism may be primary due to testicular failure, or secondary due to hypothalamic-pituitary axis dysfunction, resulting in the production or release of insufficient[bumc.bu.edu] Hypogonadism can also result from a combination of testicular failure and hypothalamic-pituitary axis dysfunction.[bumc.bu.edu] Carson III, MD Hypogonadism is defined as deficient or absent male gonadal function that results in insufficient testosterone secretion.[bumc.bu.edu]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    To our knowledge, there are no previous case reports discussing the remission of hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] insufficiency; HPA hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal; OR odds ratio.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Background Individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) have hypothalamic dysfunction and may have central adrenal insufficiency (CAI).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    In contrast, women with hypoestrogenic oligo/amenorrhea (due to either ovarian insufficiency [WHO group 3] or hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction [WHO group 1]) present with[doi.org] PCOS is characterized by hypothalamic–pituitary–ovary axis dysfunction and anovulation but, unlike other causes of ovulatory failure that feature insufficient ovarian follicle[doi.org]

  • Hyponatremia

    Adrenal insufficiency The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPAA) can be activated by severe illness and trauma, since HPAA controls the maintenance of homeostasis and[academic.oup.com]

  • Pneumonia

    The major theoretical purpose of corticosteroids in sepsis is to restore balance to the altered hypothalamic‐pituitary‐adrenal axis ( Annane 2004 ; Mandell 2015 ).[doi.org] In septic shock, a condition of extreme physiological stress, suboptimal cortisol production has been termed critical illness‐related corticosteroid insufficiency (CIRCI)[doi.org]

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    The function of hypothalamic-pituitary-gonad, thyroid, somatotrophic, and adrenal axes was assessed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] due to pituitary or hypothalamic disorder -withdrawal of steroid rx -destroying adrenal cortex Manifestations of Addisons disease -hypoglycemia -hypotension -dehydration[quizlet.com] RESULTS: The most common endocrine dysfunction was ovarian insufficiency (95% of women), followed by an increase in follicle-stimulating hormone in 47% of men, indicating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypothyroidism

    insufficiency.[web.archive.org] This pattern may result from hypothalamic immaturity (particularly in preterm infants, 12% of all newborn infants).[doi.org] […] or pituitary dysfunction, and are characterized by inappropriately normal or low levels of TSH relative to insufficient thyroid hormone.[web.archive.org]

  • Sepsis

    The task force coined the term critical illness–related corticosteroid insufficiency to describe the dysfunction of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis that occurs during[doi.org] Critical illness–related corticosteroid insufficiency is caused by adrenal insufficiency together with tissue corticosteroid resistance and is characterized by an exaggerated[doi.org]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    One was diagnosed with hypocortisolism accompanied by liver cirrhosis while the other had secondary adrenal insufficiency caused by a hypothalamic disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
