Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This longitudinal MRI study investigated the pituitary volume in 17 patients with chronic schizophrenia and 17 matched controls. In contrast to previous findings of pituitary expansion during the first episode of schizophrenia, the chronic patients showed non-significant mild pituitary atrophy, suggesting that the pituitary volume changes differently at different illness stages.
