    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.   Pituitary Today II: New Molecular, Physiological and Clinical Aspects (Frontiers of Hormone Research, Vol. 38): Medicine & Health Science Books @

This unique book presents an up-to-date discussion of clinical disorders of the pituitary gland in children with specific emphasis on state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities, highlighting the newest scientific advances in genomics and molecular biology that clinician-scientists caring for children need to know.

The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect new knowledge derived from advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, diagnostics, and therapeutics as they apply to the pituitary gland. The wide spectrum of clinical disorders emanating from dysfunction of the master gland is described in detail by experts in the field.

Since the publication of the second edition of The Pituitary, inthere have been major advances in the molecular biology research of pituitary hormone production and action and there is now a better understanding of the pathogenesis of pituitary tumors and clinical syndromes resulting in perturbation of pituitary function.

The pituitary, albeit a small gland, is known as the "master gland" of the endocrine system and contributes to a wide spectrum of disorders, diseases, and syndromes. Since the publication of the second edition of The Pituitary, inthere have been major advances in the molecular biology research of pituitary hormone production and action and there is now a better understanding.

Current research and clinical trials related to pituitary disease; 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.

The clinical and biochemical picture of pituitary adenomas reflects a continuum between functional and silent adenomas. Although some adenomas are truly silent, others will show some evidence of biochemical hypersecretion or could have subtle clinical signs and, therefore, can be referred to as clinically silent or “whispering” adenomas.

Four genetic conditions associated with pituitary tumors (namely Carney complex, MAS, MEN1, and familial isolated pituitary adenomas [FIPA]) provide useful models to advance our knowledge of the molecular basis of pituitary tumors.

In the remainder of this article we will briefly review these conditions. Posterior pituitary hormones include AHD (water and salt balance) and oxytocin (childbirth). Pituitary disorders can be due to either too much, or too little pituitary hormone secretion. These disorders can result in a wide variety of different clinical conditions, depending on.

Clinical characteristics: AIP familial isolated pituitary adenoma (AIP-FIPA) is defined as the presence of an AIP germline pathogenic variant in an individual with a pituitary adenoma (regardless of family history).

The most commonly occurring pituitary adenomas in this disorder are growth hormone-secreting adenomas (somatotropinoma), followed by prolactin-secreting adenomas (prolactinoma.

Pituitary Disorders: Diagnosis and Management is a publication written by some of the top pituitary experts in the world, this book is written for doctors who may be unfamiliar with pituitary disorders.

It is an excellent guide to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and rest of life care for pituitary patients. A GHD may occur in patients with pituitary autoimmunity; moreover, GHD may also be one of the features of some genetic syndromes in association with other neurological, somatic and immune alterations.

This review will discuss the impact of pituitary autoimmunity on GHD and the occurrence of GHD in the context of some genetic disorders. Molecular Genetics of Pituitary Tumours Four genetic conditions associated with pituitary tumours (namely Carney complex, MAS, MEN1 and familial isolated pituitary adenomas [FIPA]) provide useful models to advance our knowledge of the molecular basis of pituitary tumours.

In the remainder of this article we will briefly review these conditions. On the background of these advances, the molecular mechanisms involved in a variety of clinical disorders of water homeostasis have been defined.

In pituitary disease, one of the most common psychiatric manifestations is the presence of depressive symptoms significant enough to warrant diagnosis of a major depressive disorder. 1 Cushing’s disease is probably the most frequently studied of the pituitary diseases.
