Long-standing hypothyroidism causing thyrotroph hyperplasia can result in enlargement of the pituitary gland and hyperprolactinemia. A 20-year-old unmarried girl presented with galactorrhea for 4 months. She was evaluated and diagnosed to have severe hypothyroidism resulting in hyperprolactinemia and reversible pituitary hyperplasia. This case helps the clinicians to be aware of an unusual presentation of severe primary hypothyroidism and reminds to consider it in the differential diagnosis of pituitary enlargement with mild hyperprolactinemia.
