This article deals with the results of analysis in 3 Centers in Tashkent (RSSPMC of Endocrinology named by acad. Ya.Kh. Turakulov, Scientific Center for Neurosurgery and Scientific Center for Emergency Medical Aid of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uzbekistan), according to which for 3 years ( from 2015 to 2017) 156 patients with macro- and giant pituitary adenomas (of which 76 were men, 80 were women), middle age: men were 37.12 years, women were 38, 15 years, were examined. The authors researched the peculiarities of MRI data for pituitary gland and concluded that various variants of its supra cellular growth can serve as a neuroimaging marker of tumor aggressiveness, namely: supra-infra-late cellular growth, supra-infra cellular growth were observed in 68 patients (43.5%) and invasive tumor growth (69.2%).
