Introduction Clinically apparent pituitary adenomas are present in about 1:1000 of the general population in Europe; the most frequent sub-types are prolactinomas, non-secreting adenomas and somatotropinomas, while Cushing’s disease and

Introduction Pituitary adenomas (PA) are among the most common intracranial tumors, accounting for 10–15% of primary intracranial tumors ( 1 ). It has been confirmed by positron emission tomography and tumor cell culture experiments that PA

Introduction Although most pituitary adenomas occur sporadically, with only 5% of all cases being related to inherited syndromes ( 1 ), the mechanisms underlying pituitary tumorigenesis in a non-familial setting are poorly understood. Somatic

apoplexy may occur in either functioning or non-functioning pituitary tumours, but a higher predominance in non-functioning pituitary adenoma (NFPA) is recognised ( 2 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 10 ). Patients with pre-existing pituitary adenoma have a 2–12% chance

Background Pituitary adenoma (PA) is the second most common brain tumor. Except for prolactinoma, pituitary tumors associated with acromegaly (growth hormone-secreting) and Cushing’s disease (adrenocorticotropic hormone-secreting) as well as

Introduction Cushing’s disease (CD) is a subtype of pituitary adenoma with hypercortisolism and presents a particular challenge to neurosurgeons. Transsphenoidal surgery (TS) has long been the standard of care for patients with CD ( 1 , 2

inputs such as growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and somatostatin as well as several peripheral hormones. GH-secreting pituitary adenomas, i.e. somatotropinomas, lead to acromegaly in adults and (acro-) gigantism in children and adolescents

Introduction Cushing’s disease (CD) is a state of cortisol excess, caused by an ACTH-secreting pituitary adenoma. Although a rare disease with an annual incidence of 1.5 patients/million ( 1 ), it is associated with significant morbidity and
