Özet

Objective: Increased frequency of nodular thyroid disease has been reported in acromegalic patients. Recent studies have also demonstrated an increased co-existence of nodular thyroid disease with Cushing's disease and prolactinoma. In this study, we evaluated the frequency and outcomes of nodular thyroid disease in each type of functional pituitary adenoma.
