The novel combination of disseminated primary endometrial adenocarcinoma and a symptomatic pituitary metastasis presenting as pituitary apoplexy is described for the first time. Pituitary apoplexy is an unusual manifestation of metastatic pituitary disease. The more common clinical features of pituitary metastases and an approach to their management are discussed. The usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging in assessing the base of skull is emphasised.
