• Primary empty-sella syndrome has been rarely reported in childhood. Substantial visual disturbance was accompanied by minimal endocrine dysfunction in an 8-year-old girl whose only other complaint was headache. This syndrome in children is associated with more dramatic signs and symptoms than have been reported for adults and may be associated with progressive destruction of pituitary reserve.
