Descriptor hiperprolactinemia
Entry term(s) secreción inapropiada de prolactina
síndrome de hipersecreción de prolactina
Scope note: Concentraciones elevadas de prolactina en sangre, que pueden asociarse con AMENORREA y GALACTORREA. Entre las etiologías más comunes se incluyen el PROLACTINOMA, efecto de medicamentos, INSUFICIENCIA RENAL, enfermedades granulomatosas de la hipófisis y trastornos que interfieren en la inhibición hipotalámica de la liberación de prolactina. También puede producirse una producción ectópica (no hipofisaria) de prolactina. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch36, pp77-8)

Scope note: Increased levels of PROLACTIN in the BLOOD, which may be associated with AMENORRHEA and GALACTORRHEA. Relatively common etiologies include PROLACTINOMA, medication effect, KIDNEY FAILURE, granulomatous diseases of the PITUITARY GLAND, and disorders which interfere with the hypothalamic inhibition of prolactin release. Ectopic (non-pituitary) production of prolactin may also occur. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch36, pp77-8)
