To determine whether decreased bone density in patients with PRL-secreting pituitary tumors is specifically related to hyperprolactinemia or is a consequence of disordered pituitary-gonadal function common to all amenorrheic states, we measured the bone mineral content of the radius by photon absorptiometry in normal subjects, in women with amenorrhea and normal serum PRL levels, and in women with PRL-secreting pituitary tumors.
