• A prolactin-secreting pituitary tumor, manifesting as galactorrhea and amenorrhea, was detected in association with multiple neurofibromatosis (von Recklinghausen's disease) in a young woman. The patient showed an excellent symptomatic response to bromocriptine mesylate treatment. To our knowledge, this association has never before been reported and may represent a new endocrine tumor association.
