You may have never heard of hypopituitarism until your child was diagnosed with it. Hypopituitarism occurs when the anterior (front) lobe of the pituitary gland loses its ability to make hormones. The resulting symptoms depend on which hormones are no longer being produced by the gland.

The good news is that treating the underlying condition thats causing your childs hypopituitarism often leads to a full recovery.
