Pituitary adenomas are usually benign monoclonal neoplasms caused by a mixture of pituicyte alterations together with a changed endocrine and paracrine regulatory milieu. Thus, it can cause serious health problems such as abnormal target organ function, pain, disability and even death. In clinical practice, we found many patients with pituitary adenomas are usually accompanied by hyperlipidemia, which is the main cause of cardiovascular diseases. However, it has been unclear if there is an association between pituitary adenomas and serum lipid profile. In the present study, we aim to focus on the patients with pituitary adenomas and their lipid profile before and after operation including first occurrence and recurrence.
