Hemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare tumor with uncommon location in the central nervous system. We report a rare case of sellar and suprasellar HPC mimicking pituitary adenoma in a patient initially seen with the symptoms of bitemporal hemianopsia, headache, and panhypopituitarism. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed a contrast-enhancing soft tissue mass arising from the pituitary fossa, with apparent compression of the chiasm and involving the cavernous sinus. Subtotal resection of the tumor was achieved via a pterional approach. Histopathological examination identified the tumor as a HPC. Nine years later, the tumor recurred. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of sellar and suprasellar HPC in Korea.
