Abstract

Ki-67 Labeling Index is an immunocytochemical marker of cell proliferation. The correlation of Ki-67 expression with pituitary adenomas recurrence has been investigated and is highly debated. Aim of this study was to evaluate whether Ki-67 correlates with recurrence even in patients with an apparently completely removed pituitary adenoma. We retrospectively reviewed the database of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary Disease Unit at the Catholic University of Rome, collected between 2003 and 2011. Inclusion criteria were: patients who underwent surgery at the Department of Neurosurgery with an apparently complete removal of a pituitary adenoma; Ki-67 histological evaluation by the same operator and values of
