          Abstract

          We present a case of duplication of the pituitary gland with associated clefts of the hard palate and body of the sphenoid and a midline palatine dermoid. This is an extremely rare malformation with only six previous case reports in the literature. Imaging findings are discussed and literature reviewed for possible morphogenesis, including its association with partial twinning and midline cleft face syndrome.
