FIGURE 18 (Left) Comparison of the pattern of change of prolactin concentrations in fetal and maternal plasma during gestation. (Right) Plasma levels in normal and anencephalic newborns are compared with those of normal infants and adults. The high concentrations seen in anencephalic babies presumably reflect prolactin secretion by an anterior pituitary gland uninhibited by influences of the brain.
