Abstract

Prolactinomas present late in males due to absence of classical features in women such as cessation of menstruation and galactorrhoea. High index of suspicion will aid early diagnosis and prevent complications. Dopaminergic agonists, surgery and Radiotherapy are the treatment modalities. Dopaminergic agonists are the first option of therapy in noneasily resectable macroprolactinomas.
