Asymptomatic non-functioning ectopic pituitary adenoma in the suprasellar region: a case report.
Br J Neurosurg. 2009 Jun; 23(3):321-3.BJ

Abstract

Asymptomatic non-functioning ectopic pituitary adenomas (EPAs) are extremely rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of an asymptomatic non-functioning EPA in the suprasellar region treated by cranio-orbital skull base surgery. EPAs should be considered in the differential diagnosis and histological confirmation is necessary.
