ABSTRACT:  Pituitary abscess is a rare disease, is less than 1% of the sellar pathology, with high diagnostic difficulty, little clinical counselor, nonspecific imaging and diagnostic- therapeutic need surgery in many cases. Are called primary when seated in a healthy, and secondary when the same side gland has a preexisting condition. The infection develops through the blood, contiguous or non-obvious mechanisms. The resolution must be urgently because the course is rarely. Two cases assisted in the course of a year and review of the literature is presented.

Keywords : Pituitary abscess; intracraneal infection.
