The authors present a very rare case of an intrasellar cavernous hemangioma that mimick a pituitary macroadenoma radiologically. A 63-year-old male patient was admitted with visual field defect and clinical manifestations of pituitary failure. MR image revealed intrasellar gadolinium-enhancing tumor with parasellar extension suggesting pituitary macroadenoma. But pathology was cavernous hemangioma. It was suggested that cavernous hemangioma should be included in the differential diagnosis of pituitary mass.
