Abstract

A CASE REPORT ON PITUITARY ADENOMA WITH EMPHASIS ON ITS CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS

Jovina Merin Sam* and Minu Mariam Jose

ABSTRACT

Pituitary adenomas are a relatively common intracranial lesion. Pituitary adenomas arise from the pituitary gland and are by far the most common growth associated with the gland; they account for 15% of primary brain tumors and are the third most common intracranial tumor after meningiomas and gliomas.[8] Microadenoma is a tumor less than 10 mm in diameter. Adenomas larger than 10 millimeters are called macroadenomas and usually do not secrete hormones.[9] They may hypersecrete hormones or cause mass effects, therefore early diagnosis and treatment are important. This case report discusses about a 29 year old female with complaints of headache, decreased vision along with alopecia and episodic palpitations for 6 months. She was diagnosed with pituitary microadenoma with cyclic cushings syndrome. We aim to discuss the condition along with its clinical manifestation inorder to arrive at an appropriate diagnosis. Appropriate diagnosis should be made as early as possible by understanding the condition inorder to pave way for a rational treatment.

Keywords: Pituitary Adenoma, Microadenoma, Macroadenoma.
