Evidence-Based Neonatology: Neonatal Pituitary Hormone Deficiencies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The development of the pituitary gland is a temporally orchestrated sequence of events that will eventually produce several crucial hormones necessary for appropriate growth and development in a child. Pituitary hormone deficiency can occur as either a single deficiency or multiple deficiencies. A delay in diagnosis can lead to increased morbidity and mortality; however, knowledge of how each of the pituitary hormones functions allows one to properly diagnose and provide safe and effective replacement to prevent complications.
