Two patients are discussed who presented at our Institute with endocrine dysfunction and sellar enlargement. CT scans revealed intra and suprasellar expanding lesions with ring enhancement. The postoperative histological examination showed remnants of Rathke's cleft cyst together with signs of inflammation. CT and MRI pictures, and possible mechanisms of abscess formation in this region are discussed.
