Galactorrhoea: Report of Two Cases



Galactorrhoea has varied causes including physiological as in pregnancy, lactation, stress, or it can be pathological or drug induced. Its evaluation comprises of a thorough history, physical examination, laboratory tests and imaging studies. We report herewith two interesting cases of galactorrhoea. The first case was a rare adverse effect of a commonly used drug (domperidone and rabeprazole) and the second case was of mild hypothyroidism leading to galactorrhoea. Prolactin levels were normal in both the cases, emphasizing that not every case of galactorrhoea is associated with high serum levels of prolactin. Secondly, galactorrhoea may be present in patients who are clinically euthyroid, in such cases dynamic tests of thyroid function can identify the cause of galactorrhoea.
