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.

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 Author: Margaret E.

Wierman. 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. Diseases of the pituitary gland are common, and the most frequently encountered lesions within the sella turcica and pituitary are described and illustrated in details in this chapter.

The lesions present within this chapter include cysts and malformations, vascular lesions, inflammatory disorders, infectious diseases, systemic diseases, and both benign and malignant neoplasms.

ADH (=antidiuretic hormone) and oxytocin are the two major hormones that can get deficient with posterior pituitary disease. These two hormones are constantly being produced in the hypothalamus and secreted along special nerve pathways (thanks to for this image) to the posterior pituitary gland where they are stored in the posterior pituitary gland cells.

Pituitary apoplexy is a rare clinical emergency due to acute ischemic infarction or hemorrhage of the pituitary gland. As this disorder most often involves a pituitary adenoma, especially nonfunctioning tumors, the syndrome should be referred to as pituitary tumor apoplexy.

The precise physiopathology is not completely clear. Although in most cases it occurs spontaneously, pituitary apoplexy. 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.

In vertebrate anatomy, the pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland, about the size of a pea and weighing grams ( oz) in humans. It is a protrusion off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the hypophysis rests upon the hypophysial fossa of the sphenoid bone in the center of the middle cranial fossa and is surrounded by a small bony cavity (sella turcica Artery: superior hypophyseal artery, infundibular.

Non-tumor pituitary diseases like sarcoidosis, histiocytosis and hemochromatosis can infiltrate the pituitary gland and cause pituitary hormone imbalances. Rarely, infections or autoimmune conditions affect the pituitary gland causing hypophysitis, also characterized by hormonal abnormalities.

This book presents the state of the art in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy of hypothalamic and pituitary disorders.

After an introduction devoted to the physiology of the neuroendocrine control of the hypothalamic-pituitary unit, the diverse disorders involving hormonal excess or deficiency are systematically addressed axis by axis. Pituitary disorders are conditions caused by too much or too little of one or more of the hormones produced by the pituitary gland.A pituitary tumor compressing surrounding tissues can also cause symptoms of a pituitary disorder.
