Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the first report of successful use of anti-TNF-α therapy for a patient with granulomatous hypophysitis, in this case associated with a previous diagnosis of CD. Although glucocorticoids are used frequently as first-line therapy for primary hypophysitis, granulomatous hypophysitis can be corticosteroid resistant and other immunosuppressive approaches may need to be considered within the context of the patient.

Emergency medical identification (EMI) comes in many forms, including jewelry, wallet cards, shoelace tags, seatbelt covers, on smart phones and more recently, tattoos. While some forms of EMI are free of cost, others are expensive with annual membership fees to provide comprehensive medical information 24/7 to emergency personnel. EMI is vital for patients with chronic and/or hidden conditions like seizure disorders, cardiac disease, allergies, adrenal insufficiency (AI), and diabetes. Having EMI improves access to life saving medical care in life-threatening situations.
