The occurrence of unprobable adverse events during laparoscopic surgery has increased over the years. Among them, pituitary apoplexy has been reported only twice. The increase in the abdominal pressure might play a role in the pituitary apoplexy, as well as hemodynamic instability, anticoagulant drugs and airembolism due to insufflation of CO2 during pneumoperitoneum. We report a case of pituitary apoplexy during laparoscopic resection of sigmoid colon.
