We thank Drs Eggenberger and Cornblath for their comments. We would like to specify that the definitions we and Drs Eggenberger and Cornblath have used1 refer to papers written by researchers of our institution.2,3 Primary empty sella is a relatively common radiologic finding (8-35% in the general population), and it is often incidentally discovered.2 The definition of primary empty sella syndrome configures a cohort of signs and/or symptoms associated with the radiologic evidence of sellar arachnoidocele.3
