Secondary amenorrhea in women of reproductive age may be an indication of an undiagnosed, chronic condition and appropriate treatment is dependent upon accurate diagnosis of the underlying etiology. A thorough clinical assessment and a few common laboratory tests can easily identify the most frequent causes of secondary amenorrhea. However. in these cases, misdiagnosis is unfortunately common and often the result of poor laboratory utilization in the form of a failure to employ indicated tests…

Development of a Diagnostic Support Software in the Clinicobiochemical Evaluation of Secondary Amenorrhea Diagnosis

There has been developed an application based on the selected algorithm used for the evaluation of secondary amenorrhea and the diagnostic success of the application entirely depends on the accuracy of the algorithm that the application is based on.



Adult‐onset amenorrhea: A study of 262 patients

Galactorrhea: A Study of 235 Cases, Including 48 with Pituitary Tumors

It is shown that surgery and radiotherapy lowered prolactin to a similar degree in patients with tumor, but galactorrhea and amenorrhea often persisted after treatment, and thyrotropin-releasing hormone was most useful in identifying patients with pituitary tumors.

Galactorrhea: a study of 235 cases, including 48 with pituitary tumors.

The ergot derivatives, bromergocryptine and lergotrile mesylate, lowered prolactin in all 18 patients with idiopathic hyperprolactinemia or pituitary tumor, stopped galactorrhea in over 50 per cent, restored menses in over 70%, and allowed pregnancy in three.

Bromocriptine Mesylate (Parlodel) in the Management of Amenorrhea/Galactorrhea Associated with Hyperprolactinemia

There was a strong correlation between prolactin reduction and clinical improvement and bromocriptine mesylate was judged safe and efficacious for this purpose.

Hypothalamic dysfunction in secondary amenorrhea associated with simple weight loss.

It is concluded that hypothalamic dysfunction may be caused by weight loss per se and not related to anorexia nervosa.
