Macroprolactinoma resistant to cabergoline: effective use of quinagolide

Shah Vinit Kirankumar , Rahman Mushtaqur , Balan Diana

Prolactinomas are the most common functional pituitary tumours. Therapy is with dopamine agonists (DA). Cabergoline is frequently used as a first line agent; resistance to therapy is seen to other DA. We present a case of a 32 year old woman who moved to our area in the 1st trimester of pregnancy. She was known to have macroprolactinoma (maximal diameter > 1 cm), impinging on the optic chiasm. She was on cabergoline 0.5 mg once daily, but this was discontinued with no complica...
