    Sheehan's syndrome (SS), previously known as Simmond's disease (pituitary cachexia), is a rare condition characterized by infarction and necrosis of the anterior pituitary gland (adenohypophysis. This is a shortened version of the fifteenth chapter of the ICD Pregnancy, childbirth and the covers ICD codes O to OAll versions of the ICD, including the most recent one (), can be browsed freely on the website of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The ICD can also be downloaded in PDF-form.. Chapter XV of ICD deals with conditions occurring during.

      In the vast majority of prolactin deficiency states, the deficiency occurs secondary to general anterior pituitary dysfunction. The most commonly associated condition is postpartum pituitary necrosis (Sheehan syndrome); however, prolactin deficiency can also be caused by anterior pituitary impairment secondary to pituitary (or extrapituitary) tumor or treatment of tumor, parasellar diseases. Postpartum pituitary necrosis symptoms, causes, diagnosis, and treatment information for Postpartum pituitary necrosis (Sheehan Syndrome) with alternative diagnoses, full-text book chapters, misdiagnosis, research treatments, prevention, and prognosis.

      Sheehan syndrome refers to pituitary apoplexy of a nontumorous gland, presumably due to postpartum arterial spasm of arterioles supplying the anterior pituitary and its stalk. In , Sheehan reported 11 cases of women who died in the puerperium, all of whom had necrosis of the anterior pituitary gland (adenohypophysis).

SUMMARY Postpartum necrosis of the anterior lobe of the pituitary is not uncommon. In four years 25 examples of the recent and healed stages of the lesion have been found in the obstetric autopsies in this hospital, and 10 of these cases are recorded in this by: Diverse pathologic conditions affect the central nervous system (CNS) and pituitary gland during pregnancy and the puerperium.

Some are specific to the physiologic process of reproduction (eg, eclampsia, postpartum cerebral angiopathy, Sheehan syndrome, lymphocytic adenohypophysitis).Cited by: About 9 hr after surgery, brain MR imaging was performed because her symptoms persisted.

The scan revealed an enlarged anterior pituitary gland with no area of enhancement in the center of the pituitary gland after contrast administration, suggesting pituitary necrosis (Fig.

Apart from single cases with post-mortems reported by Jakob () Case 2 and Sheehan () Case 12 there seems to be no record of a subsequent pregnancy in a patient who has had a post-partum necrosis of the anterior pituitary, and no references to the Cited by: ABSTRACT A year-old woman with severe diabetes mellitus since the age of 7 developed anterior pituitary insufficiency after pregnancy toxaemia with hypofunction of the thyroid, ovaries and.

During pregnancy, the anterior pituitary enlarges greatly; pituitary weight increases by about 33%, as does cross-sectional area and gland. This enlargement results in an upward convexity of the superior surface of the gland when visualized by: 2.

Pregnancy is a period of significant changes in the function of the entire endocrine system in women's health. During this time, the production of polypeptide and steroid hormones by the fetal-placental unit results in physiologic changes of most maternal organs. These changes are necessary for the organ systems to adapt to the functional requirements of the mother and the : Charikleia Chourpiliadi, Rodis Paparodis.

SS means deficiency of anterior pituitary hormone resulting from infarction and necrosis of the physiologically enlarged pituitary gland of pregnancy, usually preceded by postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).

Anatomical changes in the pituitary gland during pregnancy The size and shape of the pituitary depend on the sella turcica; therefore, there is.

Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary tumors seldom are associated with pregnancy. In pituitary adenomas, treatment is often necessary to control hormonal hypersecretion and tumor mass effect related to infertility. Other causes of infertility include lymphocytic hypophysitis and Sheehan by: 1. postpartum necrosis of the anterior pituitary: production of subsequent pregnancy Author links open overlay panel H.L.

The classical studies of Sheehan have shown that the pituitary gland is very vulnerable during pregnancy and puerperium. 1 This vulnerability may lead to partial or even total hypopituitarism.

INTRODUCTION. Pituitary apoplexy is defined as a clinical syndrome that may include headache, visual deficits, ophthalmoplegia, or altered mental status due to an expanding mass within the sella turcica resulting from hemorrhage and/or necrosis 2, 13) or infarction.

Anterior pituitary insufficiency is an uncommon disease. The etiology includes destruction of the anterior pituitary gland by tumors, infarction (postpartum necrosis or Sheehan's syndrome), idiopathic disease (Simmonds' disease), surgery, and radiotherapy to the pituitary gland.
