Hypothalamic disease
Classification and external resources
MeSH D007027

A Hypothalamic disease is a disorder presenting primarily in the hypothalamus.

An example is certain forms of neurogenic diabetes insipidus.

Due to the tight integration of the hypothalamus and the pituitary, and the relative inaccessibility of these glands, it is often difficult to tell if a condition is due to dysfunction in the hypothalamus or in the pituitary, though certain hormone tests can help distinguish between these causes.
