     Pediatric Radiology CasesMost likely etiology:

    congenital  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesHistory:

    Nanosomia, therefore a tumor in the hypophysial region or a maldevelopment of the pituitary gland must be ruled out.

    In addition, absence epilepsy and mental retardeation - therefore diagnostic imaging to rule out an intracerebral tumor or an intracranial anomaly.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesPathomorphology or Pathophysiology of this disease :

    N/A  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesRadiological findings:


     MRI <- view MRI

    MRI 1: T1-SE saggital before contrast media: Depiction of a round hyperintense structure in the course of the pituitary stalk.



     MRI <- view MRI

    MRI 2: T1-SE saggital after contrast media: Depiction of a round hyperintense structure in the course of the pituitary stalk. The anterior pituitary shows a normal position and contrast media absorption.



     MRI <- view MRI

    MRI 3: T1-SE coronal before contrast media: Depiction of a round hyperintense structure in the course of the pituitary stalk.



     MRI <- view MRI

    MRI 3: T1-SE coronal after contrast media: Depiction of a round hyperintense structure in the course of the pituitary stalk. The anterior pituitary gland (adenohypophysis) shows a normal position and contrast media absorption.
     

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesDiagnosis confirmation:

    Imaging including endoscopy  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesWhich DD would be also possible with the radiological findings:

    N/A  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesCourse / Prognosis / Frequency / Other :

    The diagnoses of a pituitary infantilism was made based on the STH deficiency shown in laboratory findings.
    For other symptoms (epilepsy, mental retardation), there were no imaging correlations as to the cause of such.
