Sir: We read with great interest the recent article by Chinga-Alayo et al. [1] regarding the prognostic significance of hormonal measurements in critically ill patients. This study assessed adrenal and thyroid function but also focused on other hormones, including growth hormone, dehydroepiandrosterone, and prolactin. This is highly important since there is evidence that the latter hormones modulate humoral and cellular immune functions [2, 3]. In this context it is surprising that the authors… Expand
