RGD DISEASE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, https://disease-ontology.org/) for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:A condition when the SELLA TURCICA is not filled with pituitary tissue. The pituitary gland is either compressed, atrophied, or removed. There are two types: (1) primary empty sella is due a defect in the sella diaphragm leading to arachnoid herniation into the sellar space; (2) secondary empty sella is associated with the removal or treatment of PITUITARY NEOPLASMS.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Empty Sella Syndromes;   Empty Sella Turcica;   Empty Sella Turcica Syndrome;   Empty Sella Turcicas;   Primary Empty Sella Syndrome;   Secondary Empty Sella Syndrome
 primary_id: MESH:D004652;   RDO:0005461
 xref: GARD:6331;   NCI:C84686
