Abstract

A middle-aged man developed bilateral abducens weakness as the only symptom of a huge chromophobe adenoma of the pituitary gland. This unique presentation delayed diagnosis until exploration and biopsy. The patient, who recovered completely, was studied prior to the era of computerized tomography.
