Abstract

A case of suprasellar germinoma with subarachnoid seeding is presented. Patient had a history of depression unresponsive to drug therapy and recently developed diabetes insipidus. MR imaging revealed a huge suprasellar mass, heterogenous in signal intensity due to cystic components. MR spectroscopy of the mass showed prominent lipid peak suggesting high malignant potential.
