Abstract

The role of growth hormone (GH) in female reproduction has become a topic of increasing interest over the last decade. The replacement of GH for ovulation induction in women with hypopituitarism remains controversial. The role of GH in the human endometrium is still largely unknown. To the best of our knowledge, this study represents the first case report showing evidence that GH might play a role not only for ovulation induction, but also for the development of endometrial thickness in women with hypopituitarism.
