Introduction Macroprolactin is a significant cause of misdiagnosis, unnecessary investigation, and inappropriate treatment in patients with hyperprolactinemia Both sexes are affected, although the majority of patients are female
However, in recent years poly-ethylene-glycol PEG precipitation method has offered a simple, cheap and a rapid method for the detection of macroprolactin Two of these patients also complained of galactorrhea

Radiological Evaluations in Macroprolactinemia Pituitary imaging by computerized axial tomography CT or by magnetic resonance imaging MRI are usually negative in patients with macroprolactinemia.

Thus, there arises the need to differentiate between the apparent benign clinical condition of macroprolactinemia, that hyperprolactinemia is entirely explained by the presence of macroprolactin and the true hyperprolactinemia, which is due to increased levels of monomeric PRL and requires therapy

If pituitary phosphorylated forms of PRL are intolerant to the immune system, leakage of such forms of PRL upon hypophysitis or lack of dephosphorylation may cause an autoimmune response leading to the presence of autoantibodies associated with macroprolactin ETRADIOL E-2 — 217 LH — 18
In the past, no laboratory method was available for the simple diagnosis of macroprolactin Due to the unexpected high frequency of pituitary abnormalities observed in one of the studies, the author suggested that the diagnostic algorithm of hyperprolactinemic states should include both polyethylene glycol PEG precipitation test and MRI imaging

However, one study showed that treatment with dopamine agonists lowers the serum macroprolactin levels
