Intrasellar xanthogranuloma presenting as pituitary dysfunction: a case report

Journal of Medical Case Reports, 05/14/2012

Therefore, this entity is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. The authors suggest that xanthogranuloma should be included in the differential diagnosis, even in the case of sellar lesions, to formulate appropriate postoperative management and improve endocrine outcomes.
