Transcript

  • 1. The Pituitary Pituitary secretes 8 hormones Two divisions: 1. TSH 2. ACTH 3. FSH • Anterior pituitary 4. LH ________ 5. GH 6. PRL _________________________________________________________________ • Posterior pituitary 8. ADH (antidiuretic hormone), or vasopressin 9. Oxytocin
  • 2. What the letters stand for…• TSH: thyroid-stimulating hormone• ACTH: adrenocorticotropic hormone• FSH: follicle-stimulating hormone• LH: luteinizing hormone• GH: growth hormone• PRL: prolactin• MSH: melanocyte-stimulating hormone• ADH: antidiuretic hormone• Oxytocin
  • 3. Pathology• Pituitary – Gigantism –too much GH in childhood – Acromegaly – too much GH in adulthood – Pituitary dwarfs – too little GH in childhood – Diabetes insipidus - too much ADH• Pancreas – Diabetes mellitus – one type of insulin (not enough)• Thyroid – Hyperthyroidism, commonest is Grave’s disease (autoimmune) – Hypothyroidism • In childhood leads to cretinism • Endemic goiter from insufficient iodine in diet • Adult hypothyroidism (myxedema): autoimmune 42
  • 4. Pathology, continued• Adrenal gland – Cushing’s syndrome (see next pic) • Usually caused by an ACTH-secreting pituitary tumor • Rarely by tumor of adrenal cortex • Iatrogenic – Addison’s disease • Hyposecretion (under secretion) of adrenal cortex • Usually involves cortisol and aldosterone: low blood glucose and sodium, severe dehydration, fatigue, loss of appetetie, abdominal pain (Jane Austin) 43
  • 5. Thyroid Problems• What would happen if the thyroid could no longer produce T3 and T4?• No negative feedback to hypothalamus and anterior pituitary
  • 6. Goiter
  • 7. Hypersecretion of TSH or TH
  • 8. Hyposecretion of TH
  • 9. ↑GH as Juvenile
  • 10. ↑GH as an Adult
  • 11. How Does Hypersecretion of GH Happen?
  • 12. ↓GH = pituitary dwarfism
  • 13. Too many steroids
  • 14. Hypersecretion of Adrenal Cortex
  • 15. What Would the Feedback Loop Look Like for Cushing’s Syndrome?
  • 16. STIMULUS Hypothalamus Releasing Hormone(Release-Inhibiting Hormone) Pituitary Stimulating Hormone Gland Target Hormone
