✓ Seventeen cases of coexisting secreting pituitary adenomas and partially empty sellas are presented. The location of the cisternal invagination into the sella was not helpful in predicting the location of the tumor. In patients with endocrine indication of a secreting pituitary neoplasm, the finding of a partially empty sella should not contradict the diagnosis.
