Brain injuries namely traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) are relevant causes of acquired adult hypopituitarism, perhaps more prevalent than ever believed. TBI represent a major health problem with an annual incidence of 300 cases per 100.000. SAH affects six new cases per 1.000.000 habitants in USA. In Belgium we estimate nearly 30.000 new TBI cases and 600 SAH cases per year. In the English literature, TBI secondary hypopituitarism has been well documented in 14 retrospective and prospective series accounting for 1.077 cases. In all these series the main pituitary deficits were: GH (14%), ACTH (14%), gonadotrope (18%), TSH (7%) and diabetes insipidus (4%). SAH was documented as a cause of hypopituitarism in three retrospective series accounting for 110 cases and in one prospective series. In all these series main pituitary deficits were GH (25%), ACTH (15%), gonadotrope (8.5%), TSH (6%) and diabetes insipidus (4%). In this review, we analyze recent data and discuss diagnostic and treatment features of secondary hypopituitarism due TBI and SAH. [less ▲]

Background Impotence and decreased libido are the cardinal features of prolactinomas in males. We describe the unusual clinical, pathological and biochemical features in a male patient with a giant prolactinoma and normal gonadal function. Case Report A 57 year-old man presented with visual symptoms related to a 30 × 25 × 60 mm tumor of the sella and skull base. Biopsy revealed a pituitary adenoma and subsequent hormone profiles demonstrated grossly elevated serum prolactin (131,412 ng/ml), LH at the upper limit of normal and normal testosterone. The patient had no symptoms of decreased libido or impotence related to this giant prolactinoma. Immunohistochemistry revealed a tumor that was positive for prolactin, alpha-subunit and LH. Cabergoline greatly reduced prolactin levels but these remained above normal. LH, testosterone and alpha-subunit levels were decreased in parallel. Loss of libido and impotence became apparent when testosterone fell below normal, a situation that resolved with further cabergoline treatment and prolactin inhibition and testosterone therapy. Conclusions Sexual dysfunction is a hallmark of prolactinomas in males. Tumors that co-secrete prolactin and LH are extremely rare and this is the first such case reported in an adult male. In this case, normal testosterone was maintained by intact LH levels even in the face of the highest prolactin level reported to date. [less ▲]
