Abstract:Pituitary adenomas rarely extend to the orbit through the optic foramen and superior orbital fissure. Compressive optic neuropathy could be caused by orbital invasion of the mass showing variable visual prognosis. We are reporting a patient with intact visual acuity after 3 years of a profound orbital invasion of pituitary adenoma.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
