Panhypopituitarism after traumatic head injury


, : Panhypopituitarism after traumatic head injury. Neurocritical Care 4(1): 21-24

We describe a case report of panhypopituitarism after traumatic head injury. A previously healthy young man suffered a closed head injury and multiple spinal fractures after a motorcycle accident. His treatment in the intensive care unit was prolonged because of numerous problems with raised intracranial pressure, hemodynamics, and electrolyte balance. Eventually, hypocortisolism and other pituitary hormone deficiencies were diagnosed. Magnetic resonance images showed incoherent pituitary stalk and re-review of the first computed tomography scans of the day of the accident confirmed hemorrhage in the infundibulum. This case and review of the literature suggests that hormone deficiencies are not uncommon after head injuries.

The effect of reserpine on body weight, feed intake, and brain neurotransmitter levels in lines of chickens selected for high- (HWS) and low- (LWS) body weight was investigated. HWS or LWS chicks were randomly assigned to three treatment groups. S...
