The authors report a case which chordoma involve pituitary fossa and surrounding structures and presented as nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma. Successful surgical removal was conducted via endonasal endoscopic approach. The pathology exhibited the typical histological patterns and immunophenotype of chordoma. The authors present a rare case of sellar chordoma and review the literature on that.
