Abstract

The significance of hyperprolactinaemia is poorly understood by many clinicians. Difficulties in interpretation have arisen because many endogenous factors can alter prolactin secretion, the scale of laboratory errors is not appreciated, and reference ranges are inappropriately used. There is a need for improved communication between clinician and laboratory and for education on both sides.
