Resumen

Tuberculum sellae meningiomas (TSM) account for up to 10% of all intracranial meningiomas. We report our personal case series of 38 patients with TSMs. 36 patients underwent craniotomy for tumor resection (12 bifrontal, 12 pterional, 6 supraciliary, 4 unilateral frontal, and 2 fronto-orbitozygomatic), and 2 received an endoscopic endonasal approach. 31 patients had Simpson grades 1 + 2 excisions, while the rest underwent Simpson grade 4 excisions. The overall rate of nonvisual morbidity was 13.15% (5 of 38 patients) and mortality was 5.2%.
