The hypophysis is a small, bean-shaped organ (0.6–0.65 g) located in the sella turcica at the base of the skull. On close examination of the gland, an anterior yellowish and a posterior more fibrous and whitish part can be distinguished. The two parts are separated by a pars intermedia, a lamellar structure, grayish and fibrous in appearance. The gland is attached to the floor of the third ventricle by a hollow pedicle, the stalk of the hypophysis.
