Tuberculum sellae meningiomas are relatively common and are formidable surgical problem. Such as their relationship with Optic Nerves, Optic Chiasma, Anterior Cerebral and Internal Carotid Arteries they represent approximately 4 to 10 % of all intracranial meningiomas. They have a relatively innocuous clinical presentation despite their commonly encountered large size. This lesion can often be misdiagnosed as a pituitary tumor because of its similar clinical and radiological presentation and location.
