Prolactin is an integral member of the immunoneuroendocronology network and appears to have a role in pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases.

Prolactin was discovered 80 years ago and is currently viewed by clinical endocrinologists as a hormone of pituitary origin, whose production is negatively controlled by dopamine, whose biological actions relate exclusively to lactation and reproductive functions, for which any genetic disorder is yet to be identified, and whose unique associated pathology is hyperprolactinemia, which is efficiently cured using dopamine agonists. REF: Endocrine Abstracts (2011) 26 MTE11

Prolactin levels may be ordered when a person has symptoms of a prolactinoma, such as unexplained headaches, visual impairment, and/or galactorrhea. Testing for prolactin may be ordered, along with other tests, when a woman is experiencing infertility or irregular menses or when a man has symptoms such as decreased libido, galactorrhea, or infertility. Prolactin levels are also often ordered in men as a follow-up to a low testosterone level.
