Pituitary apoplexy means "sudden death" of the pituitary gland, usually caused by hemorrhage or infarction and often occurring in a pre-existing pituitary adenoma. In many cases, pituitary apoplexy is a medical and surgical emergency. Fast, efficient diagnosis and treatment are important in many cases. This case exemplifies an ideal lab workup and referral process to turn out best outcomes and prevent medical complications in our patient.
