BACKGROUND
The present study investigated the rates and the potential predictors of either new pituitary loss or recovery of hormonal function after transsphenoidal removal of a non-functioning pituitary adenoma. METHODS: Patients who underwent transsphenoidal removal of a non-functioning pituitary adenoma from January 2003 to December 2007 at Ajou University Medical Center were included in this retrospective analysis. Patients were excluded if they had a history of previous pituitary tumor surgery, or did not have preoperative pituitary hormonal data. RESULTS: Of 42 patients included in the analysis, 36 patients had hypopituitarism, 21 patients had "stalk compression" hyperprolactinemia, and 2 patients had normal pituitary function. At long term follow-up (longer than 6 months), 13 patients showed postoperative pituitary hormonal recovery in at least 1 hormonal axis, while 6 patients had developed postoperative hormonal loss in at least 1 hormonal axis. On analysis, neither preoperative serum prolactin level nor tumor size was related to postoperative pituitary hormonal changes. CONCLUSION: More than 1/3 of patients who underwent transsphenoidal surgery showed postoperative pituitary hormonal recovery.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Although salivary gland tissues in the posterior pituitary are occasionally observed in microscopic examination at autopsy, these tissues are considered clinically silent. Only three examples of symptomatic salivary tissues in the pituitary have been previously reported. We report a case of symptomatic salivary gland rest within the pituitary gland. A 19-year-old woman complained of headache for 2 months, and dizziness, nausea, blurred vision for 1 week. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 1.8 cm-sized mass in sella turcica with hyperintensity on T1-weighted images. Basal hormone levels and combined pituitary stimulation test were normal. The trans-sphenoidal approach of tumor removal was performed and a pathological examination confirmed salivary gland rest without any evidence of a pituitary adenoma. The symptoms had disappeared, except for post-operative diabetes insipidus.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Rathke's cleft cyst is a cystic sellar or suprasellar lesion thought to originate from the remnants of Rathke's pouch. It is characteristically lined by a single layer of ciliated cuboidal or columnar epithelium. Although small asymptomatic Rathke's cleft cysts have been reported at autopsy in 2~26% of normal pituitary glands, symptomatic cysts are rare. For patients with symptomatic Rathke's cleft cysts presentation with headache, pituitary dysfunction, and visual loss caused by compression of the optic chiasm in the event of suprasellar extension, is common. We report the endocrine characteristics of seven cases of patients with symptomatic Rathke's cleft cyst diagnosed with pathologic confirmation.
