Özet

OBJECTIVE: Pituitary abscess is a rare condition, with approximately 300 cases reported in the literature. Primary pituitary abscess, the most common type, occurs in previously healthy normal glands. Secondary pituitary abscess is secondary to pre-existing lesions in the pituitary region, such as pituitary adenoma, Rathke's cleft cysts, or craniopharyngioma and infections.
