The occurrence of ganglion cells in the sella turcica, in association or not with a pituitary adenoma, has been rarely reported. Various names have been employed for this rare entity, gangliocytoma being frequently used and recommended by WHO classification. Expression of cytokeratin in these ganglion cells has been previously occasionally reported, a very intriguing observation raising questions on the possible nature and derivation of these cells. We describe the pathological findings in three cases of growth hormone-producing adenomas, all sparsely granulated, showing the presence of a ganglion cell population admixed with an adenomatous component. A review of the literature is also provided.
