Introduction: Incidental pituitary adenoma (IPA) is found in 10–20% autopsy and radiological series. These are being increasingly detected as access to sensitive imaging modalities improves.Methods: Patients with incidental pituitary findings between 2012 and 2016 were identified from local database. Referral details, clinical features and radiological findings were analysed. A single radiologist reviewed all images to avoid bias.<p class="abste...
