We herein report a case study of a female newborn with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies who presented with generalized seizures, hypoglycemia and hyperammonemia at 18 h after birth. In addition, we review the association of hyperammonemia in neonates with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies reported in the previous literature. This unrecognized association should be taken into account for the early diagnosis and treatment of these patients.
