Primary intrasellar germinoma with synchronous pineal tumor

Neuroradiology. 1997 Dec;39(12):860-2. doi: 10.1007/s002340050521.


Germinomas arising within the sella turcica are extremely rare. The association of intrasellar and a pineal region tumours is even more unusual. We report a 30-year-old man with germinomas in the sellar and pineal region.
