Recently, Basic and Clinical Neuroscience published an article by Lim et al. (2016)  entitled Co-occurence of Pituitary Adenoma with Suprasellar and Olfactory Groove Meningiomas. They claimed it as the first case of co-occurence of these two malignancies. However, to our knowledge, this is not the first case reported in this regard. We reported the same case scenario in a 61-year-old woman referred to our outpatient clinic in 2007. In this commentary, we are going to discuss our reported case and present a brief  review over co-occurence of intracranial meningioma with pituitary adenoma.
