Forbes Albright syndrome is a hyperprolactinemia syndrome characterised by galactorrhea and amenorrhea associated with a pituitary tumour. Here we report a case of 30 years female who was admitted with menstrual irregularities for 4 months, galatorrhea and headache with recurrent episodes of loss of consciousness for 3months. Her serum prolactin level was highly raised. MRI brain (plain plus contrast) showed enlarged pituitary gland- pituitary macroadenoma. She was diagnosed as a case of Forbes Albright Syndrome and was treated with Tablet Cabergoline. With the medication, size of her tumour markedly reduced and symptoms resolved as she was followed up after 3 months.
