MRI in a 31-year-old man with pituitary apoplexy precipitated by systemic chemotherapy shows a 2.0×2.8×2.1 cm sellar and suprasellar mass with upward displacement of the optic chiasm (white arrow) and internal blood products. The pituitary stalk and gland are displaced to the left, best seen on this postcontrast image. There is heterogeneous enhancement of the sellar and suprasellar mass.
