Pituitary calcification occurs commonly in lactotroph or somatotroph adenoma but rare in chomophobe or gonadotroph adenoma. On imaging, it can mimic hemorrhage, hence may masquerade pituitary apoplexy if patient present with neurological manifestations. We present a case of pituitary calcification which mimicked pituitary apoplexy.
