Hypophysitis (or inflammation of the pituitary gland, also called the hypophysis) is a relatively rare disorder, with an estimated incidence of one case per ten million people each year.
We are particularly interested in one form of the disease, Granulomatous Hypophysitis (GH), which accounts for around 25% of cases. Because the disease is so rare, little is known about the causes of the disease, or about how to best treat it.
For this reason, we have created this online registry in order to facilitate better understanding of this disease. If you have a patient suffering from GH, we as that you obtain their consent prior to entering their details (a consent form is available for the records, and the link is available to the right).
