Suprasellar lymphoid hyperplasia presenting with diabetes insipidus and hypogonadism

Academic Article


  • We report a pediatric patient who presented with hypogonadism and diabetes insipidus. Further evaluation revealed hypothyroidism. MRI of the brain revealed a suprasellar mass. Following frontal craniotomy for mass biopsy, histological analysis of the mass revealed benign lymphoid hyperplasia. The patient has had no progression of his mass or symptoms at most recent follow-up (10 months). We review this unusual case and other similar conditions. We believe this to be the first reported case of lymphoid hyperplasia without malignant cells of the suprasellar region. Copyright © 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel.
