Informed Consent Hypopituitaryism is a condition in which the pituitary gland at the base of the brain does not produce as much of one or more hormones as it is supposed to.

Hypopituitaryism in children can cause jaundice, short stature, fatigue, mental development delay, mental and nervous system problems, and other serious symptoms. Drugs are used to replace the missing hormones to treat hypopituitaryism.
