Abstract

The term 'giant prolactinoma' can be used for tumours larger than 4 cm in diameter and/or with massive extrasellar extension. Cabergoline (CAB), a long-lasting dopamine agonist (DA), safe and well tolerated, is effective in normalizing PRL levels and inducing tumour shrinkage in micro- and macroprolactinomas. The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CAB also for giant prolactinomas.
