Abstract

Empty sella turcica is a condition in which the pituitary gland is absent completely or partially from the sella turcica or pituitary fossa. The patient may be asymptomatic with empty sella turcica as an incidental finding, or may have symptoms of pituitary hormones deficiency. Perioperative management of these patients depends on the symptoms and signs of hormonal deficiencies and the hormonal replacement treatment.
