Özet

Pituitary apoplexy can rarely occur after surgical procedures, mainly due to severe haemorrhage or hypotension. It is a serious condition that may lead to devastating complications and even to death. We present a 60-year-old male patient in whom pituitary apoplexy developed due to protamine anaphylaxis during coronary artery bypass surgery.
