A Case of pituitary somatotroph adenoma with concomitant secretion of growth hormone, prolactin, and adrenocorticotropic hormone — an adenoma derived from primordial stem cell, studied by immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and cell culture


Somatotroph adenomas often secrete prolactin (PRL) besides growth hormone (GH) and are sometimes immunostained for other anterior pituitary hormones or their subunits, such as thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) β-subunit and glycoprotein hormone α-subunit (αSU). However, Somatotroph adenomas showing hypersecretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) are… (More)
