Purpose: Macroprolactin, the high-molecular mass prolactin isoform, is considered to be an inactive product with extrapituitary origin. Although macroprolactinemia is considered a benign condition, there is evidence of overlapping clinical features among patients with hyperprolactinemia. Data on the prevalence of macroprolactinemia in prolactinomas is also quite limited. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of macroprolactinemia in our patients with prolactinoma.
