Sellar region lesions include a broad range of benign and malignant neoplastic as well as non-neoplastic entities, many of which are newly described or have recently revised nomenclature. In contrast to other intracranial sites, imaging features are relatively less specific, and the need for histopathological diagnosis is of paramount importance. This review will describe pituitary adenomas, inflammatory lesions, and tumors unique to the region (craniopharyngioma) as well as tumors which may occur in but are not exclusively localized to the sellar location (schwannoma, metastasis, etc.).
