In a longitudinal survey (1992-1999), the incidence of hypopituitarism was estimated to be 4.2 cases per 100,000. A study comprising two cross-sectional surveys showed the prevalence of hypopituitarism to be 29 - 45.5 per 100.000 individual.
Epidemiology and Demographics
- There is one study performed in northern Spain, regarding hypopituitarism epidemiology combining two cross-sectional surveys (from 1992 and 1999).
- In a longitudinal survey (1992-1999), the incidence of hypopituitarism was estimated to be 4.2 cases per 100,000.
- A study was done to find out etiological distribution among 773 adults with hypopituitarism that showed:
- Non-tumoral etiology (50%)
- Pituitary tumors (43.6 %)
- Extra-pituitary tumors (7.2%)
- There is a limited information regarding the prevalence of hypopituitarism.
- The prevalence of hypopituitarism was found to be 29 - 45.5 per 100,000 individual in the two cross-sectional studies.
- Men and women are affected equally by hypopituitarism.
- Hypopituitarism occurs at any age.
- There is no racial predilection for hypopituitarism.
