Non-functioning pituitary adenomas with positive immunoreactivity for ACTH behave more aggressively than ACTH immunonegative tumours but do not recur more frequently.
OBJECTIVES: Anecdotal reports have suggested that silent corticotroph tumours behave in an aggressive fashion; however, clear comparative data with other non-functioning adenomas (NFAs) are lacking. The aims of the study were, first, to review the natural history of those non-functioning pituitary adenomas with positive immunoreactivity for ACTH and secondly, to determine whether this subgroup behave more aggressively than ACTH immunonegative NFAs by means of comparison with existing departme...Expand abstract
