Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFAs) may be hormonally inactive tumors of differentiated cells, mainly not only gonadotroph adenomas (GAs) but also silent corticotroph adenomas (SCAs) and other differentiated silent adenomas. Recently, the use of transcription factors has been recommended to confirm cytodiffererentiation of these neoplasms. Our objective was to assess the clinical significance of the new classification system using transcription factors. Five hundred sixteen… CONTINUE READING
