Pituicytoma is a rare pituitary tumor that develops from the cells (pituicytes) of its posterior lobe (neurohypophysis).

Treatment of pituicytoma

The therapeutic management in patients with pituicytoma in each case is selected individually. The main method of treatment of pituicytoma is surgical treatment. Also, in some cases, radiation therapy is used. Drug therapy for the pituicyte-based treatment is symptomatic and used only as an adjunct therapy.
