Introduction. The granulomatous tumor (GCT) is formed from the posterior pituitary (neurohypophysis) or its pedicle. The location of such a tumor in the region of the Turkish or supra saddle is a very rare matter. Aim. To present a case report. Description of the case. This article describes the case of a 39-year-old man admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery with a MR-diagnosed head tumor in the suprasellar area growing out of the pituitary funnel. The tumor appeared to be an epileptic fit. Conclusion. Herein we described a clinical case of granulomatous tumor. GCTs in the pituitary nerves are benign tumors, which makes treatment dependent on the individual case. After the operation, the H-P study showed a granulomatous tumor (GCT) of the posterior pituitary gland.
