Caption: This sagittal (lateral) colour enhanced MRI of the brain shows a normal variant of the pituitary gland, where it is flattened along the floor of the sella turcica (meaning turkish saddle). This occurs when extra CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) enters the sella turcica and compresses the pituitary gland to the bottom of its normal anatomic compartment. This is usually asymptomatic. The pituitary gland is purple. The anterior cerebral artery and basilar artery are red. The corpus callosum is blue. The internal cerebral vein is green. The anterior commissure is blue. The mamillary body is round and green.
