Background: Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor; intracranial osteochondroma is a very rare finding in the neurosurgical literature and most of them arise from the skull base. Case report: We report a case of suprasellar ostheocondroma in a 16-year-old female, with its CT and MRI appearances, which caused visual deficits, resolved after surgery. Discussion: To our knowledge, this is the fifth case of osteochondroma affecting the suprasellar region that has been reported, with all the characteristic features of this tumor: optic chiasmal syndrome, intralesional calcifications, cartilage cap, and contrast enhancement. Conclusion: Multidiscplinary teams, including a neuro-ophthalmologist, endocrinologist, neuroradiologist, neurosurgeon, and neuropathologist are needed for correct treatment of the disease and appropriate follow-up.
