Background

Sella turcica is a shallow depression in the posterior sphenoid bone with the diafragma sellar above. Adenohypophysis communicates with hypothalamic cells through a portal venous system and it contains five principal histologically cell types.

 

There is a wide variety of tumours and tumour-like conditions that affect this region in paediatric population, which are different from those observed in adulthood. Symptoms of these conditions often overlap, so imaging tests, specially MRI, are clue to the final diagnosis.
