Abstract

Pituitary hyperplasia due to endemic hypothyroidism is very rare and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pituitary neoplasm, especially if the patient hails from endemic iodine deficient regions such as the Himalayas. Establishing correct diagnosis may save the patient of any unnecessary neurosurgical intervention.
