PMID:  207142     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The radiographic and clinical findings in twenty-three recently reported cases of suprasellar ectopic pinealoma are reviewed and three previously unreported cases are described. It is concluded that suprasellar calcification is extremely rare; enlargement of the sella turcica was present in approximately 20 to 30 per cent, none demonstrated elevation of the anterior cerebral artery. Pneumography may show a smooth or irregular filling defect in the anterior part of the third ventricle. In one of the new cases there was an isotope uptake in the suprasellar region. The differential diagnosis and other clinical data are also discussed.
