Abstract Neurohypophyseal tumors are rare. A case of a glioma of the neurohypophysis is presented. The tumor closely resembled pituicytomas or infundibulomas. Management of these lesions poses special problems as their natural history is unclear. This tumor was excised via the transnasal, transphenoidal route and there has been no recurrence during the subsequent thirty months. The transnasal approach for posterior lobe tumors appears to be acceptable for those confined to the sella turcica or displaying minimal suprasellar extension. The literature is reviewed.
