Abstract

Prolactinomas are the most common pituitary tumors but rarely seen in adolescent males. There is no indication for surgery both in micro‑ and macro‑adenomas unless an urgent treatment is necessary. First line treatment is always medical with dopamine agonists. In this report, we presented a patient with pubertal arrest and giant prolactinoma that disappeared in a short time with cabergoline treatment.
