Abstract
Malignant Triton tumour(MTT) refers to the combination of a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour(MPNST) with rhabdomyosarcomatous elements [5]. There has been only one case report in which intrasellar MPNST originated from the malignant transformation of an intrasellar schwannoma [3]. We report another rare example of a MTT which was mistaken for pituitary adenoma because of its location.
