Abstract Pituitary surgery remains mainly performed trough a transnasal, transseptal and transsphenoidal way. This surgical approach can damage intranasal structures and, in particular, may impede olfactory function. Our study investigates olfactory function in 67 patients undergoing this type of surgery before and 3 months after surgery. Mean olfactory scores were identical pre- and postoperatively. However, on an individual bases seven percent of the patients showed a clear decrease in olfactory function. In conclusion, transnasal, transseptal and transsphenoidal surgery is relativelv safe with regards to olfactory function
