It is now recognized that most clinically nonfunctioning pituitary tumors express gonadotropin hormones or their subunits in vitro, and sometimes in vivo. Many of these tumors are diagnosed by sensitive imaging techniques while patients are still asymptomatic. We outline an overview of the diagnosis and clinical management of these tumors.
