The prevalence of incidentally discovered lesions within the pituitary (pituitary incidentalomas) is about 10%. The most common form of sellar mass are clinically nonfunctioning adenomas (less than 10 mm); functioning adenomas, however, are rare. Incidentally discovered pituitary microadenomas causing growth hormone hypersecretion are uncommon. In addition, the association of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease with acromegaly is exceptional and has not yet been reported to our knowledge.
