Synonyms: Familial isolated prolactin receptor deficiency
Familial hyperprolactinemia is a rare genetic endocrine disorder characterized by persistently high prolactin serum levels (not associated with gestation puerperium drug intake or pituitary tumor) in multiple members of a family. Clinically it manifests with signs usually observed in hyperprolactinemia which are: secondary medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA)-negative amenorrhea and galactorrhea in female patients and hypogonadism and decreased testosterone level-driven sexual dysfunction in male patients. Oligomenorrhea and primary infertility have also been reported in some female patients.
