What is a Hypothalamic Hamartoma (HH)?

Hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) are rare, benign (noncancerous) tumors of the hypothalamus, a region of your brain that regulates many of your body’s systems. Hypothalamic hamartomas affect children from infancy through adulthood and commonly cause seizures, precocious (early) puberty, hormonal imbalances, and cognitive and behavioral problems.

Hypothalamic hamartomas are usually diagnosed during evaluation of patients for epilepsy or precocious puberty.
