Severe bruising and swelling on a senior woman's face, two days after having a craniotomy and brain surgery to remove a tumour. It was a benign meningioma around the pituitary gland, had been growing for some years, and eventually made its presence felt with rapidly deteriorating vision in part of one eye leading to nausea and other unpleasant symptoms. The surgery involved an incision in the hair-line from above the left eyebrow, around the top of the forehead and down to just in front of the right ear. Burr holes were made in the skull and a section of the skull was then sawn out to provide access to the brain. The forehead was peeled back and the brain moved away to allow access to the area around the pituitary gland. The patient was on her feet next morning and made a good recovery apart from post-operative hypopituitarism and loss of senses of taste and smell. Moral - make sure you always have regular eye tests. Had the patient not done so, blindness and death would have resulted!
