Thyrotropin-secreting pituitary tumors (TSHoma) are a rare cause of thyrotoxicosis and pituitary adenomas. Here we report a case of TSHoma treated with octriotide preoperatively. Patient showed quick restoration of euthyroidism with octreotide. Imaging showed significant reduction in the tumor size ten days after starting octreotide. Patient underwent trans-sphenoidal resection of tumor with restoration of vision.
