Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus is most likely to occur in young patients who have a clinical history of autoimmune disease. The presentation of clinical findings such as central diabetes insipidus and pituitary stalk thickening on sellar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a young women would strongly suggest lymphocytic hypophysitis, which is a rare inflammatory process involving the pituitary stalk and the pituitary gland, yet this disease can sometimes regress.
Key Words: idiopathic central diabetes insipidus, lymphocytic hypophysitis, young fertile women
