Abstract

Only 12 cases of pituitary tumors that metastasized within the central nervous system have been reported. A further case is presented in which the histology of the multiple dural metastases remained identical to that of the original tumor, a pituitary adenoma. The authors discuss management of these rare lesions that appear histologically benign.
