Pituitary neuroendocrine tumors (PitNETs) constitute, together with other tumors of the sellar region, 15-25% of intracranial neoplasms. In 2017, the World Health Organization proposed a new classification of PitNETs. The main innovation with respect to the 2004 classification was the recommendation to include in the immunohistochemical evaluation of PitNETs the determination of the transcription factors of the 3 pituitary cell lineages: Pit-1, Tpit and SF-1. Additionally, other clinicopathological classifications with a predictive capacity of tumor behavior during follow-up were proposed. Given these changes, it is appropriate to adapt the knowledge generated during the last 15 years to the daily practice of the treatment and monitoring of PitNETs at the Centers of Excellence in Pituitary Pathology. This document includes the positioning of the Spanish Society of Endocrinology and Nutrition (SEEN) and the Spanish Society of Pathology (SEAP) on the classification and denomination of the PitNETs and the information that the pathologist should provide to the clinician to facilitate the treatment and monitoring of these tumors.
