In 1990 for determining the prevalence of sheehan Disease, we reviewed the available medical records of 20,000 pateints admittd in 1984 at RASHT Maternity Hospital. 485 pateints who had at least, one of these criteria were included in this study: max.blood pressure at least one time< 70 mmHg; report of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and Hg <10g/dl. The addresses of 403 cases were available. 141 patients came for study. On the basis of clinical status at the time of delivery in 1362, they were classified in three groups: 'Well (72 cases), with 'Severe weakness' (18 Cases); and Unconscious" (51cases). One patient from the 'Well group had the clinical and laboratory findings of sheehan disease, and one patient from the "Unconscious' group had primary hypothyroidism and hypophyseal adrenal insufficiency.
The serum cortisol level of 7 cases of the 'Well' group, 2 cases of the 'Severe Weakness group. 5 cases of the "Unconscious group was less than 10 micg/dl.
In conclusion, six years after delivery, the prevalence of sheehan disease in the risk group is less than one percent. The cause of this low rate is unclear.
