What is Familial hypopituitarism?

  • Familial hypopituitarism: Impaired pituitary gland hormone-producing activity that tends to run in families. The failure of the pituitary gland in turn affects other hormone-producing glands which rely on the hormones from the pituitary gland for their activity. Symptoms are determined by the degree and type of hormone deficiency involved.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Familial hypopituitarism as a "rare disease".
