TSH-secreting pituitary adenomas are rare, but have been diagnosed more frequently as radiographic techniques and biochemical assays have improved. These tumors are less easily cured by surgery than are other types of pituitary adenoma because of the large size and invasive features that many attain during the delay to diagnosis. We report a case of TSH-secreting giant pituitary adenoma in which biochemical remission was achieved with surgery.
Key Words: TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma; Biochemical remission
