The aim of this booklet is to provide information for parents who have a primary school-age child with a pituitary condition. 

You may find that not all of the information applies to you in particular, but we hope it helps you to understand your condition better and offers you a basis for discussion with your child's GP and their paediatric endocrinologist.
