Empty Sella Syndrome

Both the saggital and the coronal MRI images show a lesion in the pituitary fossa, most likely a hemorrhagic pituitary adenoma. Differential diagnosis includes a Rathke’s cleft cyst.
Pituitary tumours are practically always benign. The are three hostological types of pituitary adenoma:
1) chromophobe (70%, many are non-secretory)
2) acidophil (15%, secrete GH or PRL)
3) basophil (15%, secrete ACTH)
Separate names with a comma.
