Pregnancy in Acromegaly is safe and is associated with improvements in GH/IGF-1 concentrations.

Pregnancy is rarely reported in acromegaly. Many patients are diagnosed in later life and younger patients may have subfertility due to hypopituitarism. We present a case series of 17 pregnancies in 1...

Long-term survival following transformation of an adrenocorticotropic hormone secreting pituitary macroadenoma to a silent corticotroph pituitary carcinoma: Case report.

Pituitary carcinomas are rare and aggressive neoplasms that despite current treatment regimens continue to have a poor prognosis. Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) pituitary tumors have been shown t...

Pituitary Pathology and Gene Expression in Acromegalic Cats.

The prevalence of GH-secreting pituitary tumors in domestic cats () is 10-fold greater than in humans. The predominant inhibitory receptors of GH-secreting pituitary tumors are somatostatin receptors ...

A Study to Assess SOM230 in Patients With Pituitary Cushing's Disease

The study treatment period is 15 days in length and includes patients with pituitary Cushing's disease who are candidates for surgical intervention as well as and patients who have recurr...

Muscle in Acromegaly and Cushing's Syndrome

Cushing's syndrome (CS) and acromegaly determine myopathy and muscle weakness which persist long-term after control of hormone excess. Fatty infiltration in skeletal muscle (myosteatosis) ...

Modulation of the GIP System in Patients With Acromegaly Due to a Pituitary adenoma

Impact of [11C]-Methionine PET/MRI in the Detection of Pituitary Adenomas Secreting ACTH and Causing Cushing's Disease

Cushing's disease is characterized by the existence of a benign pituitary tumor developed from corticotropic cells responsible for excessive ACTH secretion. This results in hypercorticism ...

Seoul National University Pituitary Disease Cohort Study

The purpose of this study is to investigate the treatment and natural history of pituitary disease. We have a longstanding interest in pituitary disease including acromegaly, central diabe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pituitary adenoma which secretes ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN, leading to CUSHING DISEASE.

A disease of the PITUITARY GLAND characterized by the excess amount of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE secreted. This leads to hypersecretion of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) by the ADRENAL GLANDS resulting in CUSHING SYNDROME.

A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.

A benign tumor, usually found in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, whose cells stain with acid dyes. Such pituitary tumors may give rise to excessive secretion of growth hormone, resulting in gigantism or acromegaly. A specific type of acidophil adenoma may give rise to nonpuerperal galactorrhea. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A replication-defective mouse sarcoma virus (SARCOMA VIRUSES, MURINE) first described by J.J. Harvey in 1964.
