Endocrine Anatomy and Pathophysiology

Apoplexy is a derivative of the Greek word “apoplessein,” which means “stroke.” Giovanni Morgagni made the first detailed anatomic descriptions of pituitary apoplexy in the 1760s. He classified apoplexy according to gross findings at autopsy. The presence of serous fluid in the sellar was defined as “apoplexia serosa” while gross hemorrhage into the sellar was aptly called “apoplexia sanguinea”

The pituitary gland is supplied by a pair of arteries – the right and left superior hypophysial arteries from above and the right and left inferior hypophysial arteries from below. Each superior hypophysial artery bifurcates into anterior and posterior branches, which permeate the pituitary stalk. The inferior hypophysial arteries arise from the intracavernous segment of each internal carotid artery. Branches of the inferior and superior hypophysial arteries anastomose freely within the pituitary gland.
