Abstract

Three cases of recurrent pituitary adenoma elected to be treated with I125 implants are presented. The I125 implants caused significant delayed changes in the tissues surrounding the sella tursica which lead to the development of refractory cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea. All three cases developed meningitis and two had pneumocephalus. This complication lead to the death of two patients and required intensive therapy in the third to achieve recovery.
