© 2016 The Neurosurgical Foundation. We report the case of a 70-year-old man presenting with pituitary apoplexy from a macroprolactinoma and ventriculitis. It was not possible to distinguish a bacterial or chemical origin, on the basis of his clinical presentation, laboratory studies and imaging, highlighting the importance of prompt imaging and attainment of CSF cultures, in making the diagnosis.
