Case Discussion

Pathologically proven case of craniopharyngioma (adamantinomatous).

Craniopharyngiomas are relatively benign (WHO grade I) neoplasms which typically arise in the sellar/suprasellar region. They account for ~1-5% of primary brain tumours, and can occur anywhere along the infundibulum (from floor of the third ventricle, to the pituitary gland).
