    Hypopituitarism is the decreased secretion of one or more of the eight hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. If there is decreased secretion of one specific pituitary hormone, the condition is known as selective hypopituitarism. If there is decreased secretion of most or all pituitary hormones, the term panhypopituitarism is used. The signs and symptoms of Specialty: Endocrinology. Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) is characterized by excessive unsuppressible release of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) either from the posterior pituitary gland, or an abnormal non-pituitary source.

Anorexia nervosa and pituitary cachexia (Simmonds’ disease, cachexia hypophyseopriva) are obviously conditions of great interest in this regard.

To these conditions might be added Sheehan’s disease (Sheehan, ; Sheehan and Murdoch, ), which involves necrosis of the pituitary and therefore has something in common with Simmonds’ disease. The study of the case goes to support the conclusion of Schellong that a function of the anterior pituitary is to influence the circulatory response to muscular effort.
