Abstract

The patient presented with poor vision (particularly OS) which had declined progressively over ten years. He had had bifrontal headaches over the past two years. Examination and visual field testing showed optic atrophy and a bitemporal hemianopia. Procedures leading to the diagnosis of pituitary adenoma are discussed, as are treatment modalities and association of pituitary adenomas with other entities.
