Sažetak
Spontaneous resolution of nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma after hemorrhagic
apoplexy is a rare clinical entity of unknown etiology and is defined as disappearance of a tumor without
any specific treatment. Here we present a 54-year-old male patient who presented with acute
onset of severe headache, vomiting, photophobia, and sonophobia. He was referred to brain computed
tomography, which showed a 16x12x16 mm tumor mass located in the sellar region with signs of
hemorrhage. Endocrinologic evaluation was consistent with under-function of pituitary gonadotropic
cells. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed ten days later was consistent with hemorrhagic
apoplexy of the pituitary adenoma. The patient’s symptoms resolved after conservative treatment with
dexamethasone, but he was scheduled for elective pituitary surgery. Preoperative MRI was performed
one month after the first one and disclosed normal pituitary gland without any signs of adenoma. Our
case is remarkable due to the fact that spontaneous remission of pituitary adenoma occurred within
the first month, which is the shortest interval reported to date. Our case highlights the importance of
conservative therapy as the first-line treatment for pituitary apoplexy in the absence of neurological
impairment, since spontaneous remission may occur in a short time interval.
