Hyperprolactinaemia and infertility following cranial irradiation for brain tumours: Successful treatment with bromocriptine
Petterson T., Macfarlane IA., Foy PM., Hughes HJ., Jones B., Shaw D.
Two young women developed oligomenorrhoea and galactorrhoea 4 and 7 years after whole brain irradiation for brain tumours. Both had mild hyperprolactinaemia due to irradiation-induced hypothalamic damage. In both patients, oral bromocriptine normalized prolactin levels and menstruation resumed. One patient then had a successful pregnancy. © 1993 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
