Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A young, adult, white female with long-standing amenorrhea-galactorrhea syndrome and known pituitary enlargement since 1969 is presented. Further evaluation revealed PRL levels elevated in the microadenoma range and an empty sella. The presence of a pituitary adenoma, however, could not be confirmed by our studies. The question now arises--in a young woman desirous of pregnancy, should an induction of ovulation be attempted in view of the elevated serum PRL and an empty sella?
