Calcified Pineal Gland

One client's child is found to have a calcified pineal gland. The pineal gland is a tiny endocrine gland situated at the centre of the brain. Melotonin is the only hormone secreted by the pineal gland.

Melatonin apparently acts to keep a child's body from undergoing sexual maturation, since sex hormones such as luteotropin, which play a role in the development of sexual organs, emerge only after melatonin levels have declined. This hypothesis is supported by the fact that children with tumors of the pineal gland often reach sexual maturity unusually early in life, presumably because the pineal's production of melatonin has been hampered.

This finding is consistent with my client's child. Some calcification of the pineal gland is typical in adults.
