Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Apoplexy in sellar metastasis is very rare with only a few case reports in literature. A case of apoplexy in sellar metastasis from follicular thyroid carcinoma is reported and the literature is briefly reviewed. The patient presented with sudden onset headache and bi-lateral loss of vision following thyroidectomy in a case of follicular carcinoma thyroid with proven sellar metastasis. CT scan showed hyperdense blood in sellar mass suggestive of apoplexy in sellar metastasis. The patient underwent early trans-sphenoidal decompression. Apoplexy in sellar metastasis, although very rare, can be clinico-radiologically indistinguishable from pituitary apoplexy and should be especially considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with known primary neoplastic disease. In view of similar patho-physiological mechanism, sellar metastasis with apoplexy should be managed in a similar manner as pituitary apoplexy.
