Agalactia[from a ... and grech. milk] - no milk secretion after delivery.
There are primary agalactia, caused by pathological changes in the mammary gland, and secondary agalactia, caused by a violation of the secretion of hormones from the anterior pituitary or the hypothalamic neurohormones.
Primary agalactia is absolute (which is associated with the absence of glandular breast tissue; it is rarely found in women with hypogonadism) and relative (colostrum is released for several days, then disappears; due to the presence of complete glandular tissue in the mammary gland).
Less commonly, agalactia is associated with the progressive depletion of a woman and strong mental shock; the elimination of these factors may lead to the restoration of lactation.
TREATMENT(only relative agalactia) is carried out for 10-14 days; in the absence of effect, donor milk is used, the child is transferred to mixed or artificial feeding.
