Apoplexy of pituitary tumors is a common occurrence. In addition to commonly known presentations, cerebral infarcts and consequent focal neurologic deficits are a rare presentation. A rare case of pituitary apoplexy with associated subarachnoid bleed and bilateral anterior cerebral artery infarcts is described. Vasospasm leading to cerebral infarcts and consequent focal neurologic deficits as a presentation of pituitary apoplexy needs to be better appreciated.
