Transformation of a MGUS to overt multiple myeloma: the possible role of a pituitary macroadenoma
secreting high levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1).
We report an unusual case of a 79 year old elderly patient presenting with subclinical Cushing's disease caused by pituitary macroadenoma
(ACTHoma) found incidentally.
We present the case of an atypical carcinoid tumor of lung primary metastasizing to a previously identified pituitary macroadenoma
Subsequent pituitary magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a 34 x 27 x 24 mm pituitary macroadenoma
Women ones with nausea, vomiting, orthostatic hypotension, chronic hypertension, headache, sensitivity to ergot derivatives, macroadenoma
of pituitary gland and previous use of bromocriptine or cabergoline without effect were also excluded.
Whether the patient has a microadenoma or macroadenoma
Postoperative sellar abscess is a potential complication of transphenoidal surgery for pituitary macroadenoma
resection (Figure 19).
Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the presence of a presumed pituitary macroadenoma
The topics include multiple paraclinoid aneurysms of the internal carotid artery, a case of carotid artery reconstruction, the surgical removal of pilocytic astrocytoma from the brain stem and thalamus, subarachoid hemorrhage with bilateral aneurysms and apoplexy of pituitary macroadenoma
, large meningioma of the jugular tubercle and foramen magnum, intramedullary spinal arteriovenous malformation, intraosseous tumor of the cervical spine, and fibrous dysplasia of the paranasal sinuses and anterior cranial base.
Magnetic resonance imaging of the pituitary revealed a pituitary macroadenoma
with suprasellar extension to the optic chiasm.

Follicle-stimulating hormone-secreting pituitary macroadenoma
(FSHoma) is extremely rare (1,2).
