Surgery may be considered for patients who have pituitary incidentalomas if there is clinically significant growth of the lesion, loss of endocrino-logic function, or an "unremitting headache," or if a patient is planning a pregnancy and has a lesion close to the optic chiasm
Pituitary adenomas usually grow by expansion locally within the sella and upward toward the optic chiasm
Discussing one of the earliest forms of thought, the chiasm
, Rodolphe Gasche, for example, explains, "it allows the drawing apart and bringing together of opposite functions or terms and entwines them within an identity of movements" (Gasche 273).
Since the dialogue is conditioned by the anonymous intentionality of the "prepersonal tradition", the phenomenology of the lived body is in Merleau-Ponty's work a prelude to an ontology of the human-nature chiasm
To this end, hypophysis and hypothalamus at the optic chiasm

Severe cranial trauma can "split" the optic chiasm
and produce a bitemporal hemianopia.
The Institute of Medicine's 2001 report Crossing the Quality Chiasm

The etiologies of their visual impairments included retinopathy of prematurity, glaucoma, retinal detachment, amaurosis, optic chiasm

The work being done by the group has already helped young patients like five-year-old Poppy Guilder, who has been treated for a rare type of brain tumour - an optic chiasm

Maura's intermittent diplopia, ptosis, ataxia, and anorexia with weight loss are typical findings with lesions in the deep brain structures near the optic chiasm
, thalamus, and third cranial nerve.
Cranial MRI showed obvious focal contrast enhancement in cerebral and cerebellar tissues, tension of the infundibular stalk and inferior shift at the optic chiasm
