Anterior pituitary and posterior pituitary are two parts of the pituitary gland. They differ in terms of the total area covered by each of them. Also, another difference is seen in the area of the different cellular constitution of each of the two. Anterior pituitary makes up about 75% of the pituitary gland, and it contains adenohypophysis, which is the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. The various cells that form the anterior pituitary are- neutrophilic, basophilic, and eosinophilic.

Anterior pituitary helps greatly in the synthesis and production of growth hormone and hormone that is responsible for the development of the breast in the female gender. It also helps in stimulating the functions of the thyroid gland. Posterior pituitary makes up the remaining 25% of the pituitary gland.
