Partial Empty Sella Syndrome Treatment In Ayurveda


The pituitary gland is a gland at the base of the brain and produces substances that affect the growth and hormonal levels in the body. The prevalence of Partial Empty Sella Syndrome is 10 to 30%. Females are more prone to this disease than males and mostly middle-aged females. The causes, symptoms, and ayurvedic management of Partial Empty Sella Syndrome are described in detail in this article.  

Partial Empty Sella Syndrome


Partial Empty Sella Syndrome is a condition in which the pituitary gland shrinks or becomes flattened. The pituitary gland rests in sella turcica, in the skull, and looks like a saddle compartment.

Partial Empty Sella Syndrome is of two types

  • Primary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome- occurs due to birth defects. 
  • Secondary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome- present due to some disease in the pituitary gland.

Though it is not a life-threatening condition, some people do not experience any symptoms and do not need any treatment if the pituitary gland is not enlarged.

Ayurvedic Aspect 

We can consider Partial Empty Sella Syndrome as a Vataj disorder. Excess aggravation of Vataj dosha in the brain could lead to certain serious disorders by hindering normal functioning and hormonal imbalances in the body. Since all reproductive functions related hormones are released directly and indirectly through the pituitary gland. Vata Dosha suppresses the activity of the pituitary gland. This can be recovered by balancing the body doshas with ayurvedic herbs.


The cause for primary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome and secondary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome differs. Whereas, more commonly the exact cause for both is still not known.

  • Primary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome occurs due to some birth defects in the sella diaphragm.

Secondary Partial Empty Sella Syndrome occurs due to-

  •  Brain trauma
  •  Pituitary tumors
  •  Surgery of the pituitary gland
  •  Due to other associated disorders


The symptoms of Partial Empty Sella Syndrome may include

  •   Impotence
  •   Infertility
  •   Less sexual desire
  •   Irregular menstrual periods
  •   Inflamed eyes
  •   Blurred vision
  •   Spinal fluid coming out of the nose
  •   The pressure inside the skull at its base


Diagnostic tests are done to confirm the diagnosis are

  • MRI scan
  • CT scan


There is no specific treatment for Partial Empty Sella Syndrome and in most cases, treatment is not needed until abnormal symptoms are produced-

  •  Symptomatic treatment is indicated
  •  Analgesics
  •  Hormonal replacement therapy for balancing hormones
  •  Surgery to prevent Cerebrospinal fluid leakage from the nose
