Case Study
The article presents the case of a 80-year-old Caucasian woman with manifestation of a sellar hemangioblastoma due to pituitary apoplexy. An endocrinological investigation revealed hypocortisolism with no other hormone disturbances. Fundoscopy showed no pathological findings. Findings from a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan were suggestive of an acute hemorrhage of the sellar process.
