General: Further progression of ocular findings and symptoms after treatment of pituitary tumors.
Ocular: Reduced visual acuity and possible blindness; hemianopsia; quadranopsia; irregular field defects; central scotoma; pale optic disks; central retinal vein occlusion.
Clinical: Acromegalic features and other general systemic manifestations depend on the type of the primary tumor the patient had and are not part of the "empty sella syndrome" that is responsible for progression of ocular pathologic condition.
