Pituitary tumors are the second most common intracranial tumors and are more frequent than previously thought. It poses a significant challenge for diagnosis and management. There is a widely held consensus endorsed by publications in the field, indicating that the best care for these patients is provided by an MDT composed of dedicated endocrinologists and experienced pituitary surgeons. Such a team involves specialists in multiple areas, such as neuroradiology, neuropathology, radiation oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, plus trained nursing. The pituitary MDT in our hospital was founded in 2016, and it has been a valuable tool to guide improvements in care for patients with pituitary disorders.
