Abstract: Along with the rapid development of molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, and immunology, there is a new understanding on the pathogenesis of pituitary adenomas. The pathogenesis of pituitary adenomas is considered to be related with gene mutation, growth factors, cell receptors, transcription factors, and cellular signaling pathways.

Key words: pituitary adenomas, gene mutation, growth factors, cell receptors, transcription factors, cellular signaling pathways
