Growth hormone-producing adenomas are associated with acromegaly and/or gigantism, prolactin-producing adenomas cause hyperprolactinemia and its clinical sequela, adrenocorticotropin-producing adenomas are associated with Cushing or Nelson syndromes, thyrotropin-producing tumors are associated with disturbances of thyroid function, and rare clinically detectable gonadotroph adenomas usually result in hypogonadism.
Subclassification of GHand prolactin-producing adenomas as densely granulated somatotroph adenomas with prolactin content, mammosomatotroph adenomas, or mixed somatotroph-lactotroph adenomas can be difficult without ultrastructural analysis, but the significance of these subtleties for clinical management remains unclear.
