Study and comparison of characteristics of silent growth hormone adenomas (SGHA), silent corticotroph adenomas (SCA), and silent gonadotroph adenomas (SGA) in a single institution cohort of surgically treated pituitary adenomas. Retrospective analysis of SGHA surgically resected over 10 years: SGHA was defined as no clinical or biochemical evidence of acromegaly and positive GH immunostaining. Of 814 pituitary surgeries; 2.1% (n = 17) were SGHA, 4.5% (n = 37) SCA, and 18.9% (n = 70/371; 2011… CONTINUE READING
