Adenoma, Pars Intermedia, Pituitary, Macaca mulatta
An example of a pituitary adenoma in a male rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatto), more than 13 years old, was described in an earlier report (Chalifoux et al. 1983). The adenoma was a roughly spherical mass measuring 1.2 cm antero-posterior, 1.8 cm dorsoventrad, and 1.8 cm in width, located at the site of the pituitary, and attached to the hypothalamus. When cut, it was cystic and contained mucinous material.
