Brief review and commentary: Diagnosis of pediatric pituitary disorders

John Ching, Phillip D.K. Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Pediatric pituitary diagnosis is complicated by the unique developmental characteristics, secretory patterns and regulation of each pituitary hormone system. Although dynamic test procedures have been described, validation of each procedure is limited and universally agreed diagnostic criteria are not available. Clinical acumen, experience and judgment continue to be primary elements of pituitary diagnosis.
