[Pituitary apoplexy in 2 hypophyseal tumors].Rev Clin Esp. 1993 Dec; 193(9):487-90.RC
Hypophyseal apoplexy is not always easy to confirm morphologically or analytically. We present a patient with Cushing's syndrome due to hypophyseal apoplexy and optochiasmic pachyarachnoiditis which produced serious visual alterations. The adenoma necrotized behind an area of hypophyseal apoplexy which cured the patient's Cushing's disease. The second case was admitted with hypophyseal apoplexy, presenting hypophyseal tumoration with signs of hemorrhage and subsequent panhypopituitarism.
