Typical Competitive Mental Attitude in Microprolactinomas: Comparison with the Functional Hyperprolactinaemia
Many somatic and emotional stressor stimuli have been found in connection with prolactin secretion (PRL)1,2,3,4 and prevalently in female patients with psychiatric symptoms5,6,9 and major depression10,12. On the other hand, Arana et al.13 in 1977 found that in an ambulatory population, with various medical disturbances and mild depression, PRL release isn’t associated with depression, while others11 found less basal PRL concentration in depression.
