Pheochromocytoma

Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine disorder in which a tumor grows from chromaffin cells within the adrenal medulla of the adrenal glands.1 This tumor causes the continuous overproduction of epinephrine and norepinephrine, which, if left without pheochromocytoma treatment, can lead to severe or life-threatening damage to other body systems.2

Pituitary Adenoma and Pregnancy

Pituitary adenomas are typically prolactinomas, which are the most frequent cause of elevated prolactin levels. Pituitary adenomas comprise over 85% of pituitary tumors, and 25% to 30% of these are hormonally inactive.1 The incidence of prolactinomas is four times greater in women than in men.2
