The pituitary fossa is that part of the skull that lies beneath the pituitary gland. Erosion, or thinning, of this bone is a common result of a variety of health conditions. There are a number of small cavities in this region, so if any swelling occurs in this region then there is a large pressure build up, which can cause the fossa to be eroded.
