Case Discussion

This midline sagittal MRI image demonstrates a sizeable pituitary macroadenoma growing out of the pituitary fossa and extending up the infundibulum. This growth pattern simulates the 'cock n balls' depiction of male genitalia often popularized on the back of toilet doors... well in Australia anyway.
