NINDS:43 Empty Sella Syndrome (ESS) is a disorder that involves the , a bony structure at the base of the brain that surrounds and protects the pituitary gland. ESS is a condition that is often discovered during tests for pituitary disorders, when radiological imaging of the pituitary gland reveals a sella turcica that appears to be empty. There are two types of ESS: primary and secondary. happens when a small anatomical defect above the pituitary gland increases pressure in the sella turcica and causes the gland to flatten out along the interior walls of the sella turcica cavity. Primary ESS is associated with obesity and high blood pressure in women. The disorder sometimes results in a build-up of fluid pressure inside the skull and the pituitary gland may be smaller than usual. is the result of the pituitary gland regressing within the cavity after an injury, surgery, or radiation therapy. Individuals with secondary ESS due to destruction of the pituitary gland have symptoms that reflect the loss of pituitary functions, such as the ceasing of menstrual periods, infertility, fatigue, and intolerance to stress and infection. In children, ESS may be associated with early onset of puberty, growth hormone deficiency, pituitary tumors, or pituitary gland dysfunction. MRI scans are useful in evaluating ESS and differentiating it from other disorders that produce an enlarged sella.

MalaCards based summary: Empty Sella Syndrome, also known as empty sella turcica, is related to acth deficiency and panhypopituitarism. An important gene associated with Empty Sella Syndrome is PRL (prolactin), and among its related pathways are Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network and Development Leptin signaling via JAK STAT and MAPK cascades. The compounds flesinoxan and ipsapirone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, brain and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are adipose tissue and integument.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Empty sella syndrome (ess) is a condition that involves the sella turcica, a bony structure at the base of the brain that protects the pituitary gland. there is a primary and secondary form of the condition. the primary form occurs when a structural defect above the pituitary gland increases pressure in the sella turcica and causes the gland to flatten. the secondary form occurs when the pituitary gland is damaged due to injury, a tumor, surgery or radiation therapy. some people with ess have no symptoms. people with secondary ess may have symptoms of decreased pituitary function such as absence of menstruation, infertility, fatigue, and intolerance to stress and infection. in children, ess may be associated with early onset of puberty, growth hormone deficiency, pituitary tumors, or pituitary gland dysfunction. treatment focuses on the symptoms present in each person. last updated: 7/14/2014
