Pituitary adenomas are benign tumors ; they arise from epithelial pituitary cells and they represent 10-15% of intracranial tumors. They can be found at 3% up to 20% of the population, on autopsy series. Cephalalgia is a precocious symptom which keeps going over the disease. The aspect as a whole of the person who suffers from this disease in the phase of established malady is characteristic: a very flat-shaped body, massive and stubby thus justifying the comparison with a pachyderm. Hands and legs are disproportionally bigger, like paddles, facies is disharmonic, facial features become coarse, with oblate forehead and massive prominent pregnant mandible. The joints disproportionately bigger, have limited, painful movement. The patient also presents visceral hypertrophy with numerous dysfunctions from various apparatus and systems.
