Pituitary abscess is a rare infection and it is difficult to make the correct diagnosis. It is usually treated by a combination of surgical drainage and intravenous administration of antibiotics. We describe a 74-year-old woman with recurrent meningo-encephalitis due to pituitary abscess. The abscess increased in size in spite of the intravenous administration of panipenem/betamipron (PAPM/BP), clindamyein (CLDM) and chloramphenicol (CP). Finally she was successfully treated with oral administration of sparfloxacin (SPFX) without operation.
