Purely intrasellar pituitary masses have a similar differential as the more generic pituitary region mass gamut, or the mnemonic SATCHMO, although some entities are far more common than others. Entities include: 

  • craniopharyngioma 
    • uncommon: only 5-15% of all craniopharyngiomas are confined to the fossa 1
  • meningioma
  • metastasis
  • cavernous carotid artery aneurysm
