І. І. Горпинченко, В. В. Спиридоненко

Abstract


Verification of the clinical cause and therapy of pathologically elevated prolactin levels is a pressing problem of modern andrology, which the andrologist and sexopathologist increasingly face, which requires a correct and competent approach to diagnosis and therapy.

Keywords
