Abstract


Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs) are rare and aggressive pediatric malignant rhabdoid tumors (MRTs) that occur within the brain. The majority of these tumors occur in the cerebellum. Only 45 cases of adults with AT/RTs have been reported in the literature to date. We present a case of sellar and suprasellar AT/RT in a 40-year-old female patient with this rare entity. To our knowledge, this is the 14th case of an adult-onset AT/RT in the sellar and suprasellar region.
