✓ The case is reported of a middle-aged man who had developed relatively acute, unilateral ophthalmoplegia. Radiological studies indicated a mass lesion involving the pituitary gland and right cavernous sinus. Pituitary tissue obtained by transsphenoidal hypophysectomy contained giant cell granuloma. In previous cases, the documentation of giant cell granuloma of the pituitary gland has been limited to autopsy tissue.
