Abstract

Orbital invasion of pituitary adenomas has been previously reported. In this report, the authors describe a 71-year-old female with a prolactinoma that presented with invasion of and apoplexy within the orbit. The patient underwent exenteration, followed by rapid tumor recurrence and growth. Given the hemorrhagic nature of the tumor, she subsequently underwent preoperative embolization and surgical resection. This case is notable in that it illustrates both apoplexy of a pituitary tumor within the orbit and the benefit of presurgical embolization.
