Immunohistochemical test showed immunohistochemical test disclosed a plurihormonal adenoma, producing GH mainly.
Of note, we used the World Health Organization definition of plurihormone production, (1) which requires combinations of hormone or transcription factor immunoreactivity other than from those within a given family of adenoma; hence, plurihormonal adenomas do not include tumors with combinations of GH, PRL, and TSH, or of FSH and LH, for instance.
True plurihormonal adenomas with unusual combinations of hormonal types are uncommon (see algorithm, Figure 2) and the pathologist should always reexamine the specimen in such cases to exclude the possibility of entrapped normal anterior pituicytes, some of which can occasionally be found at the edges of adenoma fragments, admixed with and surrounded by adenoma cells.
