It is extremely rare for paragangliomas to be present in the brain. We present a 44-year-old man with a suprasellar-sellar paraganglioma encasing the internal carotid arteries. We review all such tumors reported in the literature and conclude that paraganglioma should be kept in the differential diagnosis of unusual suprasellar-sellar lesions.
