Abstract

CME/Answers: Pituitary Incidentaloma in Adults: Key Knowledge for the General Practice Abstract. Incidentally detected pituitary masses, so-called pituitary incidentalomas, are increasing in frequency as the frequency of performing imaging increases. Evaluation of the imaging from a trained neuroradiologist as well as additional endocrinological and, if necessary, neuroophtalmological studies are part of the initial assessment that drives the treatment decision: in the case of benign small lesions with unremarkable assessment results, follow-up is indicated, whereas potentially malignant lesions or lesions with endocrinological or neuroophtalmological irregularities are usually treated. In borderline cases, interdisciplinary work is beneficial for the determination of the case-specific treatment procedure.
