The aim of this booklet is to provide information for parents who have a baby or young 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.

Although downloading this booklet is free of charge, could you kindly consider a small donation to help us keep our resources updated? Please visit our donation page. Thank you very much for your help.
