Abstract

We report an unusual case of pregnancy associated osteoporosis and empty Sella Syndrome with normal pituitary function. Pregnancy associated osteoporosis has been described rarely in the literature. Primary empty Sella Syndrome may occur in 5.5% of all autopsies. Primary empty Sella Syndrome with normal pituitary function has not previously been reported in association with an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery. The occurrence of these two conditions in our patient is probably coincidental.
