PMID:  3349808     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of spontaneous pneumocephalus with progression to tension pneumocephalus is presented. It is unique because it occurred spontaneously via a sellar defect 5 years after resection and irradiation of a pituitary adenoma, without tumor recurrence. Computed tomography clarified the extent of the pneumocephalus and its progression to tension pneumocephalus.
