The Pituitary is referred to as the “master gland” due to its pervasive control of our hormones. A pituitary tumour can drastically alter a person’s body and rob them of their vision. Far from being rare, pituitary tumours are frequently found incidentally on brain imaging done for other reasons. This visual presentation will utilize case examples and imaging to describe types of pituitary tumours and their effects, when to suspect your patient’s signs and symptoms could be related to the pituitary and what to order: labs, imaging, eye exams and referrals.
