Familial isolated pituitary adenoma

Disease definition

A rare, hereditary endocrine tumor characterized by a benign pituitary adenoma that is either secreting (e.g. prolactin, growth hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone) or non-secreting. Symptoms may occur due to either the hormonal hypersecretion and/or the mass effect of the lesion on local structures in the brain.
