Sella turcica was also drawn as a structure from the tip of the dorsum sella to that of the tuberculum sellae as seen on the radiograph.
It consists four clinoid processes (two anterior and two posterior), the anterior border represented by tuberculum sellae and the posterior border by the dorsum sellae (Kucia et al., 2014).
Background: Tuberculum sellae meningiomas (TSMs) present a special symptom because of the adherence and compression to the optic nerve, optic artery, and the chiasm.
The anthropometric measures included the glabella-opisthocranion [11], nasion-dorsum sellae [12], dorsum sellae- opisthocranion [13], nasion-basion [14], nasion-opisthion [15], basion-opisthion [16], prosthion-basion [17], basion-vertex [11] and the clival angle [18].
Patient was diagnosed to have tuberculum sellae meningioma and planned for surgery.
It is important to differentiate the rare diaphragma sellae meningioma from the pituitary adenoma; because their surgical approach is different.
Meningiomas in this region originate from the tuberculum sella, anterior clinoid processes, diaphragma sellae, planum sphenoidale and upper clivus (Figure 9).
The posterior boundary of the pituitary fossa is formed by the dorsum sellae, the supero-lateral angles of which are raised to form the posterior clinoid process.
Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid fistulae associated with empty sellae: Surgical treatment and long-term results.
The dorsum sellae is an important bony entity in the posterior cranial fossa of the human skull due to its close proximity and relationship with hypophyseal fossa, brain stem and emerging cranial nerves.
Small sella turcica are notable in humans who either have an absent or a partial formed diaphragma sellae.
