Abstract

Primary empty sella syndrome is an anatomicoclinical condition characterized by radiological evidence of sellar arachnoidocele (unrelated to previous surgical or radiotherapeutic treatment of this region) and is associated with endocrine disturbances and signs of intracranial hypertension (headache, visual disturbances, and papilledema), especially in young women. We report on an unusual case of empty sella disguising the diagnosis of an ocular inflammatory disease.
