    Thicknesses of Chorioretinal layers in Prolactinoma Patients: A Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Introduction: Prolactinoma is a type of pituitary tumor that produces excessive amount of the hormone prolactin. It is the most common type of hormonally-active pituitary tumor. These tumors can result in ocular complications such as vision loss and visual fields (VF) defect. In this study, we aimed to evaluate thicknesses of chorioretinal layers in patients with prolactinoma. Material and method: We enrolled 21 prolactinoma patients (13 females, 8 males and mean age: 40.7±8.1 years) and 18 age and gender matched healthy controls. All participants underwent complete hormonal and ophthalmological examination including thicknesses of chorioretinal layers and VF ...
