My daughter has pineal cyst 11 mm x 9 mm. Just noticed her hair comin out while combing. Cd this be due to pineal cyst?? Does it indicate some worsening ? She does not have other symptoms although she is cognitively delayed since birth. Now 12 yrs, the pineal cyst is in the pineal gland compressing tectal plate. Cd the cognitive delay also be due to the pineal cyst.
A pineal gland makes melatonin - so if you asked about sleep issues, I would say that is related. I would not think hair issues are related (I am a layman though) - but I would go see a good endocrinologist - a neuro-endocrinologist if possible for testing as there could be some hormonal issues.
The Magic Foundation may be able to help you out on this. That is a pretty large cyst for a small child - I presume that they are saying it has not symptoms and leave it? I would get another opinion or two.
