abstract

  • Hyperprolactinemia is an uncommon cause of primary amenorrhea. The diagnosis should be sought even in the absence of galactorrhea and sellar abnormality, particularly when thelarche and pubarche have occurred. Reduction of serum PRL levels followed by menarche can be anticipated within a few months of starting bromocriptine therapy in the majority of cases.
