Please add new MP terms:

Add "abnormal pituitary gland size" UNDER "abnormal pituitary gland morphology [MP:0000633]"
def: anomaly in the average size of the compound gland suspended from the base of the hypothalamus, which secretes somatotropins, prolactin, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), gonadotropins, adrenal corticotropin

Then, place "enlarged pituitary gland [MP:0000636]" and "small pituitary gland [MP:0005361]" and children terms thereof UNDER new term "abnormal pituitary gland size"

Add "abnormal pituitary gland weight" UNDER new term "abnormal pituitary gland size"
DEF: anomaly in the average weight of the compound gland suspended from the base of the hypothalamus, which secretes somatotropins, prolactin, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), gonadotropins, adrenal corticotropin

Then add two new terms:

"decreased pituitary gland weight" (synonyms: reduced pituitary gland weight; reduced pituitary weight)
DEF: reduction in the average weight of the compound gland suspended from the base of the hypothalamus, which secretes somatotropins, prolactin, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), gonadotropins, adrenal corticotropin
J:53777

"increased pituitary gland weight" (synonyms: increased pituitary weight)
DEF: greater than average weight of the compound gland suspended from the base of the hypothalamus, which secretes somatotropins, prolactin, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), gonadotropins, adrenal corticotropin
J:33402

These changes are suggested for keeping hierarchical assignment logically consistent (for example, see relevant terms for "abnormal prostate morphology" and "abnormal seminal gland morphology")

I have indicated the J#s for which annotations need to be revisited and assigned to the new MPs.

Thanks
