Other inflammatory processes, such as granulomas and sarcoidosis, may mimic the features of a pituitary adenoma. These lesions may cause extensive hypothalamic and pituitary damage, leading to trophic hormone deficiencies. Cranial irradiation Cranial irradiation may result in long-term hypothalamic and pituitary dysfunction, especially in children and adolescents, as they are more susceptible to damage after whole-brain or head and neck therapeutic irradiation. The development of hormonal abnormalities correlates strongly with irradiation dosage and the time interval after completion of radiotherapy.
25 mg ACTH 1-24 given IV over 8 h each day TSH LH, FSH Multiple hormones a Basal thyroid function tests: T4, T3, TSH Basal measurements Low free thyroid hormone levels in the setting of TSH levels that are not appropriately increased indicate pituitary insufficiency TRH test: 200–500 μg IV 0, 20, 60 min for TSH and PRLa TSH should increase by >5 mU/L unless thyroid hormone levels are increased LH, FSH, testosterone, estrogen Basal measurements Basal LH and FSH should be increased in postmenopausal women Low testosterone levels in the setting of low LH and FSH indicate pituitary insufficiency GnRH test: GnRH (100 μg) IV 0, 30, 60 min for LH and FSH In most adults, LH should increase by 10 IU/L and FSH by 2 IU/L Normal responses are variable Combined anterior pituitary test: GHRH (1 μg/kg), CRH (1 μg/kg), GnRH (100 μg), TRH (200 μg) are given IV −30, 0, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 min for GH, ACTH, cortisol, LH, FSH, and TSH Combined or individual releasing hormone responses must be elevated in the context of basal target gland hormone values and may not be uniformly diagnostic (see text) Evoked PRL response indicates lactotrope integrity.
Kallmann syndrome and other causes of congenital GnRH deficiency are characterized by low LH and FSH levels and low concentrations of sex steroids (testosterone or estradiol). In sporadic cases of isolated gonadotropin deficiency, the diagnosis is often one of exclusion after other causes of hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction have been eliminated. Repetitive GnRH administration restores normal pituitary gonadotropin responses, pointing to a hypothalamic defect. Long-term treatment of men with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) or testosterone restores pubertal development and secondary sex characteristics; women can be treated with cyclic estrogen and progestin.
