Only partial studies evaluating the endocrine profile in molar pregnancy have been performed. In order to characterize the neuro-endocrine pattern during and after molar pregnancy, we studied the basal hormonal levels of hCG, human placental lactogen (hPL), FSH, GH, TSH, free thyroxine index (FTI), oestradiol-17 beta (E2), and progesterone (PG), as well as the anterior pituitary response to TRH, GnRH, and hypoglycaemia induced by insulin in 7 patients during molar pregnancy and one week after molar abortion. hCG showed significantly higher serum levels during rather than after molar pregnancy and hPL was detectable in only 4 patients during, but in none after molar pregnancy. FSH values were in the follicular phase range before and after molar abortion (12.7 +/- 0.8 and 12.7 +/- 3.5 IU/l). PRL had elevated basal levels before and after molar abortion; 103.0 +/- 16.5 and 43 +/- 10.6 micrograms/l, respectively (P less than 0.05). GH levels were distinctly elevated in 3 patients during molar pregnancy; after molar abortion, the basal GH values were normal in all patients less than 10 micrograms/l. Basal cortisol and TSH levels were in the normal range before and after molar abortion. The FTI was above the normal range in 3 patients during molar pregnancy, whereas after molar abortion the values were normalized. E2 levels were elevated before and after molar abortion, 1881 +/- 477 and 96.5 +/- 39.2 ng/l, respectively (P less than 0.01). PG levels before and after molar abortion were 30.9 +/- 5.4 and 10 +/- 6.7 micrograms/l, respectively (P less than 0.05).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
