INTRODUCTION: Autoimmune hypophysitis is a rare disease of the pituitary, which may affect vision by inflammation and compression of the optic chiasm. However, intrachiasmatic abscess formation has not been previously reported.

METHODS: In this study, we report a case of a 29-year-old female with bitemporal hemianopia due to a cystic intrasellar tumor. The patient underwent surgical decompression of the lesion, which was found to be an intrachiasmatic abscess.

RESULTS: The histologic findings were consistent with IgG4 hypophysitis.

CONCLUSION: This rare clinical presentation suggests that in case of a disproportionate degree of visual impairment in relation to the size of the lesion, suspicion should lead to an intrachiasmatic lesion.
