Abstract

Congenital hypopituitarism was found in two female infants who had profound hypoglycemia and hypothyroidism. In both infants, death occurred despite recognition of the disorder and institution of appropriate therapy. Autopsy findings showed an absent pituitary gland and sella turcica, with hypoplastic adrenal and thyroid glands, and ovaries in one case, and pituitary gland aplasia with absent thyroid and right adrenal glands plus a hypoplastic left adrenal gland in the other case.
