Expert commentary

Prolactin is a hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland and is responsible for the functioning of the reproductive system. High levels of prolactin in the blood may indicate the presence of a pituitary tumor, accompanied by neurological symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and visual disturbances.


In this case, considering the clinical symptoms and prolactin levels significantly exceeding the laboratory norm, it is necessary to first exclude a prolactinoma—a pituitary gland adenoma secreting prolactin.
