A Late-onset of Sheehan’s Syndrome Presenting with Life-threatening Hypoglycemia

Abera H, Berhe T, Mezgebu T and Woldeyes E

We described a case of 40 year-old lady who presented with a 16 year history of generalized fatigue and recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia. She had a complete clinical evaluation, endocrine studies, and a pituitary magnetic resonance scans that revealed pan-hypopituitarism secondary to Sheehan’s syndrome. She was given hormone replacement therapy, which led to a significant improvement in lethargy, anorexia, muscle weakness, and episodes of hypoglycemia. This case shows the impact of delay in the diagnosis of an easily treatable medical condition and its consequences, especially for the population of a developing country like Ethiopia
