Granulomatosis with Polyangitis (GPA) typically affects the lungs, kidneys and ENT system. Pituitary involvement is extremely rare, affecting less than 1% of all cases. The most common pituitary manifestations are secondary hypogonadism and Diabetes Insipidus (DI).Corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents represent mainstay of medical management. Treatment needs to be initiated promptly and individualised according to clinical response.Case 1: A 54-ye...
