Abstract
Pituitary apoplexy refers to a clinical syndrome characterized by sudden headache, visual impairmentm and ophthal-moplegia, which are caused by infarction or hemorrhage of the pituitary tumor. There is disagreement regarding the role of early surgery. All the patients may not require surgical decompression because spontaneous recovery is possible. We report 4 cases of pituitary tumor showing spontaneous resolution after pituitary apoplexy treated only by hormonalreplacement therapy.J Korean Neurol Assoc 18(6):779~782, 2000Key Words : Pituitary apoplexy, Spontaneous resolution
