Very late recovery of vision after removal of giant pituitary tumour



Visual impairment is the most common clinical presentation of the pituitary tumour. Visual recovery usually occurs within days to months after surgical removal of the tumor. We report a case of a giant pituitary tumour where preoperatively there was severe visual impairment. Postoperatively he recovered vision in one eye within three months and the other eye remained completely blind for 5 years, then it began to recover very slowly to a serviceable vision in the next six years.
