This is an interesting case of hypopituitaryism that allows students to consider the outcomes of several hormone deficits.  The information provided in the case study and the questions are clear enough that this resource can be used after discussing the pituitary hormones, or as a prompt for activite learning where individual students or groups of students learn the information as they look for answers to the questions.

Janice Fritz, St. Clair County Community College

A case study beginning with a specific pituitary problem that advances to a more diverse and wide-spread endocrinology case. Good questions to guide the student responses.
