Prolactinomas are common tumors of the anterior pituitary gland. While conventional therapies, including dopamine agonists, transsphenoidal surgery and radiotherapy, are usually effective in controlling tumor growth, some patients develop treatment-resistant tumors. In this report, we describe a patient with an invasive prolactinoma resistant to conventional therapy that responded to the administration of the alkylating agent, temozolomide.
