IBARRA-DE LA TORRE, Abraham et al. Invasive adenoma in sphenoid and clivus. Arch. Neurocien. (Mex., D.F.) [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.3, pp. 191-195. ISSN 0187-4705.

This is a report on a patient's case with a pituitary adenoma that produced prolactin with amyloid deposits in the sphenoid sinus and the clivus. The patient, a 59 year old man, has suffered from headaches for the last 25 years, with hyperprolactinemia. Imaging studies including skull x-ray films, cranial tomography, and magnetic resonance showed the presence of a tumor in the sphenoid sinus and the clivus. This tumor was partially resected by extended sublabial transseptal transsphenoidal approach. Its possible ectopic origin and embryological relation was presented.

Palavras-chave : ectopic pituitary adenoma; sphenoid sinus; clivus; amiloid.
