Abstract

A 53-year-old woman with symptoms of hypopituitarism and ophthalmoplegia was diagnosed as having idiopathic granulomatous hypophysitis and later developed bilateral optic neuritis. She responded well to steroid treatment. Granulomatous hypophysitis is a rare entity, and this is the first reported case associated with optic neuritis.
