Book Description :

The idea for this book developed as an outcome of a multidisciplinary sym posium entitled "Pituitary Adenoma Update" that was held at Tufts-New En gland Medical Center in April 1977. The purpose of that symposium was to put together our current knowledge of the cause of pituitary tumors and discuss the diagnostic evaluation and management that was now appropriate, in light of the rapid advances that had taken place so recently in this area. Those of our colleagues who had presented papers at the symposium, as well as a number of others, were invited to contribute to this volume, which should serve as a presentation of the "state of the art" on all aspects of pitu itary tumors. We felt that such a book would be of value to endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and pathologists who are involved in the investigation or care of patients with pituitary disorders. For a number of reasons, a review of pituitary adenomas seems particu larly timely. Rapid advances have taken place coincidentally in the fields of neurosurgery, neuroendocrinology, neuroradiology, neuropathology, and neuropharmacology. Seven major developments in these areas have occurred independently and almost simultaneously that have virtually revolutionized our approach to pituitary adenomas.

Book Description :

Pituitary adenomas account for 10-15% of all intracranial tumors and they frequently impair fertility. The development of medical and surgical therapy for such tumors has turned pregnancy into a reality for women harboring pituitary adenomas. However, gestation risks for both mother and fetus are still of concern for endocrinologists, gynecologists and pediatricians. This book intends to update knowledge on this topic, mainly regarding fertility restoration as well as gestational and post gestational management of patients with pituitary tumors.

Book Description :

The pituitary gland, likewise called the "master" gland, is a pea-estimate gland important to the functioning of the human body. It is located behind the eyes and below the front of the mind. The pituitary gland produces hormones that regulate critical body organs and glands, including the: thyroid gland adrenal glands ovaries testicles Tumors that structure in the pituitary gland are rare and generally noncancerous, or considerate. Most are likewise considered "functioning," which implies that they produce hormones. Tumors that don't create hormones are classified "nonfunctioning." As indicated by the American Cancer Society, few of the 10,000 tumors projected to be analyzed in 2016 will turn out to be cancerous. Common types of generous pituitary tumors include: Adrenocorticotropic hormone-secreting (ACTH) tumors About 16 percent of pituitary tumors secrete too a great part of the hormone adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), causing Cushing's syndrome. Symptoms can include: high blood pressure high blood sugar thinner arms and legs excess fat around the torso Cushing's syndrome isn't constantly caused by a tumor, but observe your doctor for tests if you notice any of the symptoms of an ACTH tumor. Growth hormone-secreting tumors These tumors cause your body to deliver too much growth hormone. Symptoms can include: high blood sugar growth of excess body hair abnormal sweating abnormal growth of your feet and hands Prolactin-secreting tumors These tumors can diminish dimensions of testosterone in men and estrogen in women. Symptoms can incorporate erectile dysfunction and breast growth in men, and abnormal menstruation and discharge from the breasts in women. Thyroid-stimulating hormone-secreting tumors These tumors can cause hyperthyroidism and increment your metabolism. Symptoms can include: abnormal sweating irregular heart rate abnormal weight loss abnormal solid discharges Pituitary cancer (pituitary carcinoma) is rare. Just a couple of hundred instances of pituitary cancers have ever been recorded in the United States. Most were analyzed in more seasoned people and about 75 percentTrusted Source of cases were analyzed after death. Favorable tumors account for about 30 to 40 percent of every single pituitary tumor, as per the American Brain Tumor Association. They are most common in young, reproductive-age women and men in their 50s. One of every 4 people may have an amiable pituitary tumor (adenoma) and not know it because the tumor is noncancerous and doesn't cause any symptoms. Pituitary tumors are often considered mind tumors, and they make up 12 to 19 percent of all essential cerebrum tumors. But most pituitary tumors are benevolent and most of them are treatable.

Book Description :

The pituitary, albeit a small gland, is known as the "master gland" of the endocrine system and contributes to a wide spectrum of disorders, diseases, and syndromes. Since the publication of the second edition of The Pituitary, in 2002, there have been major advances in the molecular biology research of pituitary hormone production and action and there is now a better understanding of the pathogenesis of pituitary tumors and clinical syndromes resulting in perturbation of pituitary function. There have also been major advances in the clinical management of pituitary disorders. Medical researchers and practitioners now better understand the morbidity and mortality associated with pituitary hormone hyposecretion and hypersecretion. Newly developed drugs, and improved methods of delivering established drugs, are allowing better medical management of acromegaly and prolactinoma. These developments have improved the worldwide consensus around the definition of a "cure" for pituitary disease, especially hormone hypersecretion, and hence will improve the success or lack of success of various forms of therapy. It is therefore time for a new edition of The Pituitary. The third edition will continue to be divided into sections that summarize normal hypothalamic-pituitary development and function, hypothalamic-pituitary failure, and pituitary tumors; additional sections will describe pituitary disease in systemic disorders and diagnostic procedures, including imaging, assessment of the eyes, and biochemical testing. The first chapter will be completely new – placing a much greater emphasis on physiology and pathogenesis. Two new chapters will be added on the Radiation and Non-surgical Management of the Pituitary and Other Pituitary Lesions. Other chapters will be completely updated and many new author teams will be invited. The second edition published in 2002 and there have been incredible changes in both the research and clinical aspects of the pituitary over the past 8 years – from new advances in growth hormones to pituitary tumor therapy. Presents a comprehensive, translational source of information about the pituitary in one reference work Pituitary experts (from all areas of research and practice) take readers from the bench research (cellular and molecular mechanism), through genomic and proteomic analysis, all the way to clinical analysis (histopathology and imaging) and new therapeutic approaches Clear presentation by endocrine researchers of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying pituitary hormones and growth factors as well as new techniques used in detecting lesions (within the organ) and other systemic disorders Clear presentation by endocrinologists and neuroendocrine surgeons of how imaging, assessment of the eyes, and biochemical testing can lead to new therapeutic approaches

Book Description :

Pituitary Adenomas is a comprehensive book about the most common pathology of the pituitary gland in the sellar region. The book chapters include epidemiology, symptoms and signs, clinical, imaging, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural pathological diagnosis, therapeutic approaches and outcome of the functional and non-functional pituitary tumors. Therapies include medications, endoscopic transphenoidal and open surgeries; radiotherapy includes gamma knife radiosurgery. Visual symptoms has important and characteristic patterns which has discussed in one specific chapter. Endocrine secretion is another characteristic in 40% of pituitary adenomas. Therefore, another chapter presents it. Stereotactic radiosurgery and endoscopic surgery both have special role in recent decades. Thus, they have considered specifically, too. Authors expect to give excellent insight in pituitary adenoma to the book readers.
