A resected suprasellar mass was found to be an ectopic pituitary adenoma on light microscopy, but immunohistochemistry revealed unusual staining patterns. Residual disease was demonstrated on postoperative studies and γ-knife radiosurgery was used for treatment. The literature on ectopic pituitary tumors was reviewed. We concluded that postoperative stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for ectopic, suprasellar pituitary adenomas (and variants thereof) is an appropriate management option for persistent disease.
