From bench to bedside, Diseases of the Pituitary: Diagnosis and Treatment offers endocrinologists, neurologists, pathologists, gynecologists, and pediatricians the most up-to-date single reference for understanding the physiology, pathology, and pharmacology of normal pituitary hormones and for treating and diagnosing the various diseases associated with the : Hardcover.
Subsequent sections cover posterior pituitary disorders, such as diabetes insipidus, functional hormone deficiencies of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, including delayed puberty and pubertal disorders and growth hormone disorders, neuro-opthalmic disease, CNS radiation, childhood cancer treatment and traumatic brain injury.
Pituitary Disorders: Diagnosis and Management is the perfect clinical tool for physicians and health care providers from many related disciplines, and an essential companion for the best quality management of pituitary patients.
The Pituitary, Fourth Edition, continues the tradition of a cogent blend of basic science and clinical medicine which has been the successful hallmark of prior editions. This comprehensive text is devoted to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of pituitary disorders.
The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect new knowledge derived from advances in molecular and cell biology.
Online shopping from a great selection at Books Store. The pituitary gland may be affected by a wide variety of systemic disorders. The pituitary could be directly involved by the same processes that affect other organs (e.g., inflammatory, autoimmune, or infectious disorders), or the primary disease process may elicit indirect, distant effects on pituitary–hypothalamic hormonal function.
The pituitary gland may be affected by a wide variety of systemic disorders. In some instances, the pituitary is directly involved by the same processes that also afflict other organs, while in other disorders, the primary disease process has indirect, distant effects on pituitary function.
Investigation of hypothalamo-pituitary disorders involves the assessment of endocrine function – whether deﬁcient, excessive or mixed – and delineation of the anatomy, size and topographical relations of any pituitary or parapituitary masses.
This clinically oriented book will familiarize the reader with all aspects of the diagnosis of tumors and other disorders of the pituitary gland by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The coverage includes acromegaly, Cushing’s disease, Rathke cleft cysts, prolactinomas, incidentalomas, nonsecreting adenomas, other lesions of the. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Tindall, George T., Disorders of the pituitary.

is an excellent choice for endocrinologists and other physicians looking for a single book on pituitary : $ We evaluate impairments that result from endocrine disorders under the listings for other body systems.
For example: 1. Pituitary gland disorders can disrupt hormone production and normal functioning in other endocrine glands and in many body systems.
The effects of pituitary gland disorders vary depending on which hormones are involved. Drawing on the latest advances in the fields of developmental, molecular, and structural biology, Diseases of the Pituitary: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the of the normal functioning of the pituitary and of the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders.
Pituitary disorders generally occur when the pituitary gland is either too active or not active enough. Often there is a discrete piece of pituitary gland which leads to the problems, this is called a pituitary adenoma (if it is large it may be called pituitary macroadenoma).Author: Dr Gurvinder Rull.
Pituitary tumors (also called pituitary adenomas) can result in hormonal overproduction causing serious endocrine disturbances such as acromegaly (excess GH), Cushing's disease (excess ACTH) or prolactinoma (excess prolactin).

The pituitary endocrine gland, which is located in the bony sella turcica, is attached to the base of the brain and has a unique connection with the hypothalamus.
The pituitary gland consists of two anatomically and functionally distinct regions, the anterior lobe (adenohypophysis) and the posterior lobe (neurohypophysis).
Between these lobes lies a small region called the intermediate by: 1. Disorders of the hypothalamus and/or anterior pituitary can also result in hypopituitarism, including adrenal insufficiency (see adrenal disorders section), hypothyroidism (see thyroid disorders section), hypogonadism (see puberty and its disorders section), growth hormone deficiency (see growth disorders section) and prolactin deficiency (inability to lactate).

Get this from a library. Diseases of the pituitary: diagnosis and treatment. [Margaret E Wierman;] -- "Nineteen cutting-edge review articles by leading authorities provide a comprehensive overview of the normal function of the pituitary and of the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders.
The anterior pituitary gland produces growth hormone (GH), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), and prolactin.
Their secretion is regulated by hypothalamic releasing and inhibitory factors delivered via portal capillaries, and by negative feedback inhibition of the cognate hormones produced by. With pituitary disorders, you often have too much or too little of one of your hormones.
Injuries can cause pituitary disorders, but the most common cause is a pituitary tumor. Start Here. Nineteen cutting-edge review articles by leading authorities provide a comprehensive overview of the normal function of the pituitary and of the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders.
Topics range from normal hypothalamic-pituitary interactions and the processes that disrupt them to new advances in pituitary imaging and appropriate Brand: Humana Press. If so, this is the book for you, providing a full analysis of pituitary disorder management from acromegaly to Addison's Disease; from Cushing's Disease to hypopituitarism; from hormone disorders to hormone : Wiley.
Nineteen cutting-edge review articles by leading authorities provide a comprehensive overview of the normal function of the pituitary and of the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders. Topics range from normal hypothalamic-pituitary interactions and the processes that disrupt them to new advances in pituitary imaging and appropriate Price: $ Pituitary Tumors as a Pituitary Gland Disorder The abnormal growths found in the pituitary gland are called the pituitary tumors.
The tumors are benign, but may cause hormonal imbalances and may interfere with the normal functioning of the pituitary gland. Overproduction or underproduction of a pituitary hormone will affect the respective end-organ.
For example, insufficient production (hyposecretion) of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in the pituitary gland will cause hypothyroidism, while overproduction (hypersecretion) of TSH will cause disms caused by the pituitary gland are less common though, accounting for Specialty: Endocrinology.
The pituitary gland sits below the brain in a midline pocket or fossa of the sphenoid bone known as the sella turcica, imaginatively named by anatomists because of its likeness to a Turkish horse saddle.
Embryologically, anatomically and functionally the human gland is divided into two lobes. The anterior lobe constitutes two thirds of the volume of the gland and the posterior lobe one third. The hypothalamus–pituitary complex can be thought of as the “command center” of the endocrine system.
This complex secretes several hormones that directly produce responses in target tissues, as well as hormones that regulate the synthesis and secretion of hormones of other glands. In Pituitary Disorders: Diagnosis and Management, some of the world’s foremost experts in the field of endocrinology discuss aspects of specific disorders, from acromegaly to thyroid stimulating hormone secreting tumors, and disorders specifically for men, women and children.

We’ll go over the anatomy and function of the pituitary gland, the hormones it stores and.

Anterior pituitary disorders The anterior (front) lobe of the pituitary gland releases a variety of hormones that affect growth, physical and sexual development, and other endocrine glands. Oversecretion or undersecretion of certain hormones by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland will cause other endocrine glands to over- or under-produce.
Signs and symptoms of anterior pituitary disorder. A slowly growing pituitary adenoma, which is essentially a benign tumor of the anterior pituitary, will often first affect the gonadotropins, followed by growth hormone deficiency, and finally to hypothyroidism and low ACTH.
