Summary: We present the MR appearance of the sella turcica in three sibling dwarfs with combined pituitary hormone deficiency in which MR images revealed a peripheral curvilinear band of enhancement about the pituitary gland in all three patients, a normal-size pituitary gland in two siblings, a mildly enlarged pituitary gland in one sibling, and a thin infundibulum and a normal posterior pituitary bright spot in all three siblings. Possible antecedents include an abnormal vascular supply, pituitary gland replacement by a nonfunctioning adenoma, a proteinaceous cyst, or a hamartoma.
