Sheehan's syndrome is a well-known cause of panhypopituitarism secondary to pituitary apoplexy, which generally occurs after an intrapartum or postpartum bleeding episode characterized by severe hypertension or hemorrhagic shock. The diagnosis can be difficult and is often formulated after some years from the syndrome occurrence. We report the case of a woman with an early diagnosis of early onset Sheehan's syndrome associated with severe preeclamptic toxemia complicated by acute renal failure.
