Note that the mass is separate from the normal enhancing adenohypophysis (arrow) (Figure 1(c))
The pituitary gland comprises two sections--the adenohypophysis, or anterior lobe, and the neurohypophysis, or posterior lobe.
This is complicated by frequently small samples, admixed nonneoplastic adenohypophysis, many possible subclasses with overlapping features, and an abundance of immunohistochemical (IHC) reagents.
Therefore, this antibody should detect ACTH and [beta]-LPH, which typically originate from adenohypophysis (anterior pituitary gland).
Effects of leptin on basal and GHRH-stimulated GH secretion from the bovine adenohypophysis are dependent upon nutritional status.
MRI of the brain including dynamic sellar protocol revealed congenital absence of the pituitary gland, with neurohypophysis and adenohypophysis. An ECHO revealed biventricular hypertrophy, mild peripheral pulmonary stenosis, and small patent ductus arteriosus with left to right shunting.
The most frequent causes are nonsecreting adenomas, ischemic necrosis of the pituitary gland, and surgical removal or irradiation of the pituitary adenohypophysis. Hormone deficiency may be the consequence of no or decreased production, or inadequate absorption by the tissues responsible [1].
[17] assessed the occurrence of excess iron in some parts of the brain (basal ganglia, adenohypophysis, thalamus, and midbrain) among patients with [beta]-thalassemia major and evaluated the relationship among serum ferritin and liver iron content.
The pituitary gland consists of two major parts: the posterior pituitary or neurohypophysis and the anterior pituitary or adenohypophysis. The two parts are closely linked by the pituitary (hypophyseal) portal system of vessels.
Pituitary adenomas are generally slowly growing, benign neoplasms of epithelial origin originating from the adenohypophysis. They constitute approximately 10-15% of all intracranial mass lesions (5, 6).
Hyperpolactinemia was induced using different method namely prolactin, sulpiride, antipsychotic drugs therapy, a transplant of adenohypophysis (ADH) to the renal capsule, and other methods including stress.
Hypophysis gland is consisted of two parts as adenohypophysis and neurohypophysis.
The THS secreted by the thyroid cells of adenohypophysis play a vital role in the control of the thyroid axis and acts as an extremely useful physiological marker in the THs action.
