Prolactinoma presenting with intermittent third nerve palsy.
  1. W N Wykes

At his second presentation carotid angiography gave normal results, but a high resolution CT scan showed a tumour in the right parasellar region. The serum prolactin was raised at over 22,000 millimicrons/, showing this to be a prolactinoma.
