Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a rare and very aggressive central nervous system neoplasm that is most often seen in infants and young children. The prognosis remains poor, with a median survival time of <1 year. Here, we report a follow-up on a case of AT/RT that originated in the sellar and suprasellar region in a 42-year-old female patient with unusually long survival.
