Pituitary tumors are rare tumors (less then 10%) of the central nervous system (CNS), which malignicity depends on their localization, meanwhile, their biological nature is benign. The diameter they have is mostly less then 10 mm (microadenomas), but sometimes could be 10 mm (macroadenomas) to 5 cm and more and then are usually nonfunctional (about 20% of all pituitary tumors). Clinical presence depends on their localisation and hormonal activity. In the Center for Clinical Neuroendocrinology and Pituitary Diseases, in the last working 10 years, there were treated and examined 504 patients from Croatia, all with pituitary tumors: 182 patients with prolactinomas, 137 with acromegaly, 70 with Morbus Cushing (Mb...

Patients (pts) with essential hypertension normally exhibit a typical diurnal variation with a nocturnal blood-pressure (BP) decreased. A lack of this periodicity is often reported in pts with secondary hypertension. 24-h BP measurement was therefore performed in 308 pts with essential hypertension, and in 172 pts with secondary hypertension, in order to evaluate the diagnostic value of nocturnal BP decrease. Diagnoses of the secondary hypertensives were: renoparenchymatous hypertension (n = 29), diabetic nephropathy (n = 24), morbus Conn (n = 6), renal artery stenosis (n = 32), pheochromocytoma (n = 5), hemodialysis pts (n = 30), and kidney transplantation (n = 44)...

With 131 operated patients in the University Hospital of Urology in Zurich the indication for surgery in the 4 most frequent groups of adrenal disease is discussed. The preoperative localization of the tumor is exact in 96% of all cases with the serum examination in different stage of the vena cava. The appearance of hypertensive and hypotensive crises during surgery can be prevented with an adequate alpha-adrenergic blockade and volume replacement before and during the operation. In the surgery of Morbus Cushing we prefer the bilateral, dorsal incision on the 11th rib, if we haven't an unilateral adenoma...
