A case of pituitary apoplexy in a child with massive subarachnoid and intraventricular hemorrhage is reported. The patient presented with a sudden onset of headache, diminution of visual acuity and a bitemporal visual field defect. Computerized tomography revealed a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage with extension of blood into the third ventricle. Angiography did not show an aneurysm. The patient was operated on and altered blood within a necrotic pituitary adenoma was decompressed. His vision and field defect improved along with resolution of headache in the postoperative period.
