Solitary fibrous tumor of kidney is an unusual condition. It is spindle cell tumor with mesenchymal in origin so most commonly reported cases are in pleura, and extra-pleural sites are very rare. It is mostly benign in nature but malignant variant are also reported. Treatment is en bloc resection as in other sites whether pleural or extra-pleural. Prognosis is excellent. This tumor is difficult to diagnose only on imaging features; so for diagnosis, histopathology is needed mostly with immunohistochemical markers like CD34, CD99, Bcl2 proteins...

Transsphenoidal microscopic pituitary surgery is an effective way of treating pituitary tumors. However, minimal invasive approach endoscopic transsphenoidal pituitary surgery has become much more prevalent these days. Endoscopic surgery resects the maximum tumour with less complications. As endoscopic surgery is much safer and less invasive as compared to the microscopic transsphenoidal surgery, selection of technology for the treatment of pituitary adenoma is becoming increasingly equivocal. The main aim of this systematic review was to assess the safety of endoscopic and microscopic transsphenoidal pituitary surgery in terms of postoperative complications...
