OBJECTIVE Gonadotroph adenomas are generally revealed by symptoms of mass effect at the stage of macroadenoma. Most of them hypersecrete FSH and/or gonadotrophin subunits. Rarely they hypersecrete LH, which could induce endocrinological symptoms. As the glycoprotein inhibin is secreted by the gonads under FSH control, we have evaluated whether high immunoreactive inhibin (iINH) levels correlated with FSH hypersecretion and whether iINH and FSH levels were related to tumour volume in subjects… CONTINUE READING
