    An Introduction to Pituitary Disorders

    Pituitary disorders are rare and include acromegaly, adult growth hormone deficiency, craniopharyngioma, Cushing’s disease, diabetes insipidus, hypopituitarism, non-functioning tumours and prolactinoma. These conditions can be hard to diagnose, but advances in pituitary imaging technology and the development of intraoperative MRI have facilitated prompt detection. Treatments include pituitary hormone replacement, dopamine agonist therapy for the treatment of prolactin-secreting pituitary tumours and some growth hormone-secreting pituitary tumours, and somatostatin, octreotide and pegvisomant for the treatment of acromegaly. The approval of oral octreotide delayed-release capsules is set to transform the maintenance therapy of patients with acromegaly.
