A Case of Congenital Hypopituitarism with Anterior Pituitary Aplasia and Ectopic Posterior Pituitary Gland.
Young Su Jung, In Seok Lim
Abstract
Congenital hypopituitarism is a rare disorder with absence or reduction of hormones produced by the pituitary gland. The clinical manifestations are hypoglycemia, prolonged jaundice, hyponatremia, micropenis, underdeveloped clitoris, lethargy, convulsion, pallor, cyanosis, apnea, hypotension, temperature instability etc. in neonates and growth failure, delayed or absent puberty in older infants and children. We experienced a case of congenital hypopituitarism who was a 20-year-old male patient with short stature and delayed puberty. Combined pituitary function test revealed panhypopituitarism and magnetic resonance imaging of brain showed anterior pituitary aplasia and ectopic posterior pituitary gland.
