Abstract

The authors describe an 11-year-old girl with duplication of a pituitary gland and hypertelorism. Of the 14 cases described to date, only 2 others have lacked associated major facial or oral anomalies. Two separate glands, respective stalks and hypothalamic enlargement were incidentally found on MRimaging performed to evaluate the patient's complaint of anosmia. A tortuous fusiform dilatation of one pericallosal artery was also discovered, A review of hypophyseal embryogenesis is presented. It is now evident that duplication of the pituitary can occur without other major dysmorphias. This may infer that notochord/prochordal plate deficits are not a prerequisite forhypophyseal duplication. Copyright (C) 2000 S. Karger AG, Basel.
