  • The empty sella syndrome is usually associated with normal pituitary function. If dysfunction is present, this is commonly hypofunction, Hyperfunctioning microadenomas have been described in the presence of the empty sella syndrome. We present the first reported cases of a microadenoma invading the clivus associated with an empty sella.
