Abstract

Craniopharyngiomas are epithelial tumors arising along the path of the craniopharyngeal duct and presenting with a variety of manifestations. Their optimal management remains a subject of debate. Currently, surgical excision followed by external beam irradiation is the main treatment option. Craniopharyngiomas are associated with significant long-term morbidity and mortality rates.
