Simultaneous occurrence of two primary brain tumors with different pathologies is rare. These tumors have occasionally been reported with history of phakomatosis or radiotherapy. De novo occurrence is extremely rare with only 71 cases reported. We present a case report of a simultaneous occurrence of a temporal lobe gliosarcoma with a pituitary adenoma. The patient underwent surgery for both lesions in the same hospitalization and survived 13 months.
