Burak SADE
Dokuz Eylül Üniversitesi, Tıp Fakültesi, Nöroşirürji Anabilim Dalı, İzmir Meningiomas arising from the tuberculum sellae and planum sphenoidale are relatively common lesions of the anterior fossa and the central skull base. In spite of their proximity to each other, their clinical management and the surgical decision-making may vary at times due to their inherent anatomical differences. This paper aims to serve as a basic review with regard to the clinical and surgical management of these lesions. Anahtar Kelimeler : Meningioma, Planum sphenoidale, Tuberculum sellae
