Sheehan's syndrome (SS) is one of the most common causes of hypopituitarism. The primary effect of SS is a deficiency in production of growth hormone (GH). A number of studies have supported the association between congenital GH deficiency and ocular anomalies. However, ocular findings such as central corneal thickness (CCT), intraocular pressure (IOP), and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) have not been evaluated in patients with adult GH deficiency. The objective of this study was to evaluate ocular anomalies in SS with GH deficiency under a cross-sectional design.
