Pituitary Podcast
Dr. Roberto Salvatori (MaryO's Endo) Podcast. Listen as Dr. Salvatori discusses pituitary tumors.


Partial reversibility of GH deficiency in the GHRH knock out mouse by postnatal treatment with a GHRH-analogue

A mouse with targeted ablation of the GHRH gene: a new model of isolated GH deficiency

Variability in anterior pituitary size within members of a family with GH deficiency due to a new splice mutation in the GHRH receptor gene

Serum GH response to pharmacological stimuli and physical exercise in two siblings with two new inactivating mutations in the GH-releasing hormone receptor gene

Detection of a recurring mutation in the human GH-releasing hormone receptor gene

Decreased expression of the growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor gene due to a mutation in a Pit-1 binding site

Three new mutations in the gene for the growth hormone (GH)-releasing hormone receptor in familial isolated GH deficiency type IB

Familial dwarfism due to a novel mutation in the growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor

I found Dr Salvatori to be wonderfully kind, interested and knowledgeable. He listened thoughtfully to my complaints and never suggested that I was simply "fat and depressed". In the first visit, I learned things about my diagnosis that my previous endo had completely skipped. I saw Dr Salvatori after my pituitary surgery. He did not originally diagnose me with Cushing's.

Pediatric endo

When I called him 2 plus years ago he got right on the phone with me and diagnosed me based on my 24 hour urine cortisols, serum cortisols, and the dexamethasone / suppression test. He is very kind, knowledgeable and a Cushing's pro.
