Sellar malignant tumors are uncommon and usually reported as metastatic diseases from breast or lung cancers. Spindle cell carcinoma (SCC) is a rare malignancy and has been found in breast,oral cavity,lungs,kidneys,and hepatobiliary pancreatic system but not in sellar region. We report here the first case of isolated sellar SCC with aggressive features in Peking Union Medical College Hospital. This patient was referred to our hospital on September 9,2015 and discharged on October 16,2015. We described the clinical manifestations,imaging findings,and pathological features of this rare disease.

Key words: sellar malignant tumors, central diabetes insipidus, spindle cell carcinoma
