When IVF patients get pregnant, they know how important measuring their blood  HCG level is, to monitor the health of their pregnancy.However , they aren't sure how to interpret these levels.The reason it can be hard to make sense of them is because the normal range varies vary so widely; and because they rise so quickly as the pregnancy grows.Remember that HCG levels are very dependent on the gestational age of the pregnancy.Also, tracking HCG levels over time gives us far more valuable information as compared to just a single level !Read more at www.drmalpani.com/knowledge-center/articles/hcgYou can register at www....

We report an unusual plurihormonal tumor co-expressing Pit-1 and SF-1 along with hormones made by cells of both lineages. Its simultaneous occurrence adjacent to a corticotroph tumor raises questions regarding the pathogenesis of these tumors. We pr opose the possibility of a stem cell tumor with multiple lineage differentiation. We hypothesize that pregnancy might have played a permissive role in tumorigenesis.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the monitoring, management, and outcomes of pituitary tumors in pregnancy. METHODS: A national, prospective, observational, population-based case series study was conducted in all U.K. consultant-led obstetric units over 3 years using the U.K. Obstetric Surveillance System. To evaluate rates of adverse pregnancy outcomes, women with a macroprolactinoma (10 mm or greater) or nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma, diagnosed before or during pregnancy, were compared with two comparison groups: 1) a U.K. Obstetric Surveillance System cohort with singleton (n=2,205) or twin (n=27) pregnan...
