Prolactinomas are common benign pituitary neoplasms. Amyloid deposits are rare findings that have been reported in pituitary neoplasms. We report a case of a 48-year old man with a diagnosis of prolactinoma with extensive amyloid deposition. To our knowledge, this is the first case of amyloid in a pituitary neoplasm at our institution.
