Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In women with acromegaly due to growth hormone (GH)-secreting pituitary adenomas, the occurrence of pregnancy warrants consideration of: (1) the consequences of pregnancy on the pituitary adenoma including the tumor syndrome and GH/IGF-1 secretion, (2) the consequence of GH/IGF-1 hypersecretion on the pregnant woman and the fetus, (3) the consequences of pituitary surgery and medical treatment (dopamine agonists, somatostatin analogs, GH receptor antagonist) on the pregnant woman and the developing fetus.
