Description:

For example, loss of peripheral vision may be the result of a pituitary tumor pressing on the optic chiasm ([link]) The pituitary, seated in the sell Turkic of the sphenoid bone, is directly inferior to the optic chiasm The axons that decussate in the chiasm are from the medial retinue of either eye, and therefore carry information from the peripheral visual field Pituitary Tumor The left panel of this figure shows the top view of the brain The center panel shows the magnified view of a normal pituitary, and the right panel shows a pituitary tumor The pituitary gland is located in the sell Turkic of the sphenoid bone within the cranial floor, placing it immediately inferior to the optic chiasm If the pituitary gland develops a tumor, it can press against the fibers crossing in the chiasm Those fibers are conveying peripheral.
