Fracture involving the sella turcica is a rare complication of head injury but draws attention of neurosurgeon because it can result in serious neurological, vascular and endocrine complications. Anatomically the sella being located central within the extensive basal dural attachments to the cranial vault, shearing force is transmitted directly to this structure and results in isolated complications. We recently experienced a case of fractured dorsum sellae complicated with cranial nerve palsy and report here with some references.
Key Words: Fractures of the sella turcica; Head injury; Neurological, vascular and endorcrine complications
