Abstract

This clinical review summarizes current approaches to diagnosis and treatment of anterior pituitary hormone deficiency. The diagnostic value of endocrine function tests and replacement strategies for hydrocortisone, thyroxine, sex steroids, and growth hormone replacement are reviewed. Female androgen deficiency syndrome and the current role of DHEA and testosterone replacement in women are also discussed.
