  • If originating superior to the optic chiasm, more commonly in a craniopharyngioma of the pituitary stalk, the visual field defect will first appear as bitemporal inferior quadrantanopia, if originating inferior to the optic chiasm the visual field defect will first appear as bitemporal superior quadrantanopia.

  • They arise from the cells along the pituitary stalk, specifically from nests of odontogenic (tooth-forming) epithelium within the suprasellar/diencephalic region and, therefore, contain deposits of calcium that are evident on an x-ray. (wikipedia.org)
  • This elevation occurs as a result of the compression of the pituitary stalk, which interferes with the brain's control of prolactin production. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Obtained results are indicative of such main advantages of the method, as a panoramic view of the sphenoid sinus cavity, precise differentiation of neoplastic and intact tissue of the pituitary body, early diagnosis and elimination of liquorrhea. (neva.ru)
  • patients
  • Unfortunately, over 40 percent of CD patients do not have a visible pituitary adenoma on magnetic resonance (MR)-imaging (the most sensitive imaging modality for ACTH-positive adenoma detection and localization). (clinicaltrials.gov)
