Summaries for Pituitary Hypoplasia

MalaCards based summary : Pituitary Hypoplasia, also known as hypoplasia of the pituitary gland, is related to septooptic dysplasia and pituitary tumors. An important gene associated with Pituitary Hypoplasia is HESX1 (HESX Homeobox 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network. Affiliated tissues include pituitary and testes, and related phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and craniofacial
