Pituitary apoplexy in non-functioning pituitary adenomas: Long term follow up is important because of significant numbers of tumour recurrences

Objectives The frequency of pituitary tumour regrowth after an episode of classical pituitary apoplexy is unknown. It is thus unclear whether regrowth, if it occurs, does so less frequently than with non-apoplectic non-functioning pituitary macroadenomas that have undergone surgery without postoperative irradiation.
