Inappropriate Follicle Stimulating Hormone Secretion Definition


Inappropriate Follicle Stimulating Hormone Secretion:

Inappropriate secretion of anterior pituitary gland hormones. The most common hormones involved in over-secretion are SOMATOTROPIN (which may cause ACROMEGALY) and PROLACTIN (which results in HYPERPROLACTINEMIA). THYROTROPIN; luteinizing hormone (LH); CORTICOTROPIN; and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE may also be secreted at inappropriate levels. Hypersecretion syndromes are frequently associated with the presence of a pituitary ADENOMA (see also PITUITARY NEOPLASMS).

Synonym: inappropriate secretion adrenocorticotropic hormone, inappropriate tsh secretion syndrome, inappropriate thyroid stimulating hormone secretion, inappropriate secretion luteinizing hormone, inappropriate secretion follicle stimulating hormone, inappropriate luteinizing hormone secretion, inappropriate lh secretion syndrome, inappropriate fsh secretion syndrome, inappropriate adrenocorticotropic hormone secretion, inappropriate acth secretion syndrome, hyperpituitarism, inappropriate secretion thyroid stimulating hormone.
