Abstract: Three patients with congenital toxoplasmosis and hypothalamo-pituitary dysfunction are reported. All three children were growth hormone (GH) deficient, two were gonadotropin deficient and one had precocious puberty in addition to central diabetes insipidus (DI). It is suggested that congenital toxoplasmosis might result in a neuro-endocrine disturbance and thus be an organic cause of hypopituitarism. Pituitary function and growth should be monitored in children with congenital toxoplasmosis.
