Idiopathic hyperprolactinemia increases anterior pituitary hormone deficiency risk

April 21, 2017

Patients with idiopathic hyperprolactinemia have a higher risk for anterior pituitary hormone deficiency that may require hormone therapy compared with patients with microprolactinoma, study data show.

“Dynamic assessment of anterior pituitary function is not standard practice in the investigation of patients with microprolactinoma or idiopathic hyperprolactinemia,” the researchers wrote in the study background. “Although hyperprolactinemia causes suppression of gonadotropin secretion, with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, hyposecretion of the other anterior pituitary hormones is not considered to occur with sufficient frequency to justify routine testing.”
