Six patients with primary amenorrhea and hyperprolactinemia are presented. The patients had normal secondary characteristics and normal body proportions. In four patients a tumour of the hypophysis was diagnosed radiologically, while in two patients the cause of hyperprolactinemia remained unknown. The gonadotropin concentration in the serum was normal. Reaction to Gn-RH was the same as that in women with the normal cycle in the follicular phase. In all the patients with function of the thyroid was normal. Primary amenorrhea was found in 14.6% of women with a disturbed cycle and hyperprolactinemia. In all the patients the administration of bromocryptin normalized prolactin concentrations, induced ovulation, and four patients became pregnant.
