Summary The management of pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors is one of the most difficult tasks for neurosurgeons and endocrinologists. Optimal treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach; neurological, ophthalmological, and endocrinological tests are all required. Fortunately, the past decade has seen rapid improvements in the management of patients with pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors. Transsphenoidal surgery has gone from being an innovative approach to pituitary adenomas to having become the standard procedure for a whole variety of sellar and para-sellar lesions. The author
