  • Look Inside

A case of pituitary adenoma associated with Rathke's cleft cyst is reported.

A 35-year-old woman suffering from visual dis-turbance, polydipsia-polyuria and amenorrhea galac-torrhea was admitted. Since 3 years before admis-sion, she had been administered thyradin under the diagnosis of primary hypothyroidism. Visual acuity was 0.1 on the right and 0.06 on the left, and visual field examination showed bitemporal hemianopsia. Endocrinological study disclosed primary hypothy-roidism and moderate hypopituitarism.
