  there is a question on uworld, ID:5628

it gives a scenario of pt with prolactin 5000 and size 2.5 cm.

For this case, should resection be the answer?

In CK i remember there used to be a table that if pituatary adenoma is >2 CM u always resect
if smaller, then you try medication like bromocriptine..

can someone please shed light on this?
