Pituitary apoplexy occurs after infarction of a non-neoplastic pituitary or sudden expansion of an adenoma following haemorrhage or infarction. It usually occurs spontaneously but can follow a number of causes including pituitary stimulation tests. Since this complication is potentially life-threatening, the benefits of subjecting patients who might have pituitary tumours to such tests should be considered.
