  Abstract Pituitary adenomas (PAs) account for about 13.5 % of all primary brain tumors and represent the third largest group of brain tumors after meningiomas and gliomas [1]. They are either hormone secreting or non-functioning tumors and mostly benign in nature. Due to their vicinity to the optic chiasm and their disturbance of hormonal equilibrium, PAs are associated with substantial morbidity. Knowledge about the etiology of PAs is scarce. No study to date has explored overweight and obesity as risk factors for PAs despite increasing evidence that body mass index (BMI) is associated with some primary brain tumor subgroups [2–5]. Smoking in relation to the risk of PA was assessed by two recent studies without demonstrating a clear association [6, 7]. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between BMI, smoking and the risk of incidental PA in the HUNT 1 study.
