Pituitary tumours represent an uncommon and heterogeneous disease, often invalidating. Knowledge relatively to the incidence and prevalence of these tumors is currently sparse. In particular, there are currently no available estimates for the Italian population. Main aims of this project are:

1) to evaluate prevalence of pituitary tumours in the Piedmont Region;

2) to evaluate prevalence of pituitary tumours in the Piedmont Region;

For this purpose, regional electronic health databases will be used. An algorithm will be developed to identify cases of pituitary tumours from the electronic health databases, and this will be then validated using clinical data.
