Metastasis, or involvement of the pituitary gland, is uncommon and is usually a complication of systemic cancer in elderly patients with diffuse malignant diseases. We hereby describe the case of a 47 yr-old man who has a pituitary lesion, hypopituitarism and Hodgkin’s disease. After a year from the diagnosis and chemotherapy we observed a complete reversible hypogonadism and a normal pituitary stalk.
