The authors present two cases of intrasellar schwannoma, a condition rarely reported in the literature. The patients presented with symptoms of hypopituitarism. Sellar magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) revealed intrasellar masses extending into the suprasellar region, with the normal pituitary gland also identifiable in the imaging study. The tumors were removed via trans-sphenoidal route, and found to be very firm, unlike usual pituitary adenomas. Tissue diagnosis confirmed the tumors as schwannoma.
