A variety of lesions involve the pineal region these include both neoplastic processes and congenital le¬sions. Tumors of the pineal region are classified into those arising from the pineal parenchyma, germ cell neoplasms, metastasis, and lesions aris¬ing from adjacent structures. They make up less than 1% of intracranial tumors in adults and are commoner in children. Knowledge of the variety of lesions that occur in the pineal region, their imaging ap¬pearances, and their clinical features assists in narrowing the differential diagnosis and optimizing patient treatment of these rare tumors. Pineal gland lesions as it is are rare, with only a few cytologic descriptions occurring in the literature. We hereby present 04 cases of pineal region tumours with a radiology cytology and histopathological correlation.
