Reversible Suprasellar Pituitary Mass Secondary to Hypothyroidism

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Sellar enlargement and suprasellar extension of a pituitary mass, demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomographic scanning in three children with primary hypothyroidism, resolved after treatment with levothyroxine sodium. This condition, a logical consequence of the pathogenesis of primary hypothyroidism, must be considered in patients with pituitary and suprasellar masses. © 1989, American Medical Association.
