Magnetic resonance images showing hemorrhage of the pituitary gland and pituitary atrophy as indicated by arrows. A) T1-weighted coronal image shows high signal intensity on the right side of the adenohypophysis consistent with hemorrhage. B) T2-weighted sagittal image shows decreased pituitary gland height and heterogenous low signal intensity of the central adenohypophysis due to hemorrhagic infarction.
