Granular-cell pituicytomas of the neurohypophysis have a controversial histogenesis and oncological behavior. The occurrence of such a tumor in a patient whose father and daughter had endocrine neoplasms suggests a neuroectodermal origin for these tumors. Although all of the conditions considered in this report are unusual clinical entities, their correlation offers considerations in understanding the importance of genetic factors in tumor development.
