Cerebral ischemia due to pituitary apoplexy is very rare. Optochiasmatic syndrome from adhesive arachnoiditis with coesxisting hypophyseal adenoma: A patient with sudden onset of ptosis, particularlywith a complete oculomotor palsy is most likely to be diagnosed apoplejka a posterior communicating artery aneurysm and not a pituitary tumour.

Patients may present with acute ptosis. South Med J ; Pituitary adenomas complicating cardiac surgery: Headache is common and may be the only presenting symptom. Two cases of pituitary tumour presenting with ptosis are reported. Subsequent magnetic resonance apkplejia MRA also revealed narrowing of the left carotid siphon and images of the brain showed a pituitary tumour of inhomogenous but mainly high signal intensity on T1 weighted images T1WI and iso-intensity on T2 weighted images T2WIin keeping with a haemorrhagic tumour.

Cerebral infarction after pituitary apoplexy: Treatment consists in urgent sellar decompression by transsphenoidal surgery and substitute therapy with steroids. The sudden increase in pressure of the sella turcica’s contents results in a clinical syndrome characterized by headache which can be “thunderclap headache”visual disturbances and hypopituitarism. The following patients remind us that pituitary apoplexy is an uncommon but important associated finding in acute unilateral ptosis. Histology confirmed a pituitary adenoma with extensive areas of haemorrhage and necrosis, consistent with apoplexy.
