Summaries for Hypopituitarism

GARD: 19 Hypopituitarism occurs when the body has low levels of certain hormones made by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland normally makes several hormones (including growth hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotropic hormone, prolactin, follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, vasopressin, and oxytocin). These hormones are important for directing body growth and development, and for regulating blood pressure and metabolism. Symptoms of this condition vary and depend on which hormones are affected.

MalaCards based summary: Hypopituitarism, also known as pituitary insufficiency, is related to combined pituitary hormone deficiencies, genetic forms and culler-jones syndrome. An important gene associated with Hypopituitarism is PROP1 (PROP Paired-Like Homeobox 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Signal Transduction and G-Beta Gamma Signaling. The drugs Testosterone and Racepinephrine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, thyroid and brain, and related phenotypes are nervous system and homeostasis/metabolism

Disease Ontology: 11 A pituitary gland disease characterized by the decreased secretion of one or more of the eight hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland.

Wikipedia: 75 Hypopituitarism is the decreased (hypo) secretion of one or more of the eight hormones normally produced... more...
