      ANCIENT HISTORY OF PITUITARY STALK (Abstract): Organ of milimetric size, the pituitary stalk has drawn the attention of anatomists since Antiquity. Considered for hundreds of years to be an evacuation path for waste products produced in cerebral ventricles, the pituitary stalk aroused the curiosity of anatomists. In this study, we will be presenting the first contributions of the ancient scholars Hippocrates of Kos, Rufus of Ephesus and Galenus of Pergamon on the anatomy and function of pituitary stalk.
