Abstract Hyperprolactinemia occurs along with many physiological and non-physiological factors. The most important non-physiological pathologic cause of this disorder is prolactin-secreting tumor or prolactinoma. It is one of the common causes of hypogondism and infertility in women and a common pituitary tumor in men leading to visual impairment and impotency. Dopamine agonists are effective for prolactinoma management in majority of patients even in pituitary macroadenoma cases and just few patients may require surgery. Since misdiagnosis of prolactinoma can cause mistreatment with costly drugs, precise evaluation, accurate diagnosis, understanding indications of treatment, duration of treatment and follow up are of high importance.
