Background: While craniopharyngiomas (CPs) are the most common cystic suprasellar lesions in adults, cavernous malformations (CMs) only exceptionally occur in this location and are seldom considered in the differential diagnosis of such lesions. However, unlike CPs, suprasellar CMs are not typically approached via an endoscopic endonasal approach. Case Description: We present a unique clinical case of suprasellar and third ventricular CM mimicking a CP, posing a major decision-making dilemma at the levels of both preoperative diagnosis and surgical planning...

Objective: To investigate the effects of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) on metabolic parameters in patients with craniopharyngioma surgeries. Methods: Totallys 30 patients with craniopharyngioma were included in this retrospective study. They were divided into growth hormone (GH) group and control group according to whether they received rhGH therapy or not. The following parameters, including body mass index (BMI), weight, waist circumstance, transaminase, fasting blood glucose, lipid profile and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) were compared after rhGH therapy for 4-6 months...

BACKGROUND: Craniopharyngioma (CP) adherence represents a heterogeneous pathological feature that critically influences the potentially safe and radical resection. OBJECTIVE: To define the MRI predictors of CP adherence severity. METHODS: This study retrospectively investigated a cohort of 200 surgically treated CPs with their corresponding preoperative conventional MRI scans. MRI findings related to the distortions of anatomical structures along the sella turcica-third ventricle axis caused by CPs, in addition to the tumor's shape and calcifications were analyzed and correlated with the definitive type of CP adherence observed during the surgical procedures...

BACKGROUND: Total removal of craniopharyngiomas is burdened by high morbidity. In cases of a cystic or mixed craniopharyngioma, when the symptoms are caused by the cystic component of the tumor, a less invasive surgical approach aiming at cyst drainage may be recommended. Here we report our experience with intraventricular neuroendoscopy, describing our clear-cut surgical technique, and analyzing results in the context of literature data. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical data of 8 consecutive adult patients affected by cystic or mixed craniopharyngioma that were treated with intraventricular neuroendoscopy at our Institution in the last decade...

OBJECTIVE The expanded endonasal endoscopic transsphenoidal approach has become increasingly used for craniopharyngioma surgery in the pediatric population, but questions still persist regarding its utility in younger children, in recurrent and irradiated tumors, and in masses primarily located in the suprasellar region. The narrow corridor, incomplete pneumatization, and fear of hypothalamic injury have traditionally relegated this approach to application in older children with mostly cystic craniopharyngiomas centered in the sella...

Craniopharyngioma, due to its sellar location, can be perioperatively complicated by different types of dysnatremia. We present a rare postoperative onset of a combination of three different mechanisms of dysnatremia with N-terminal pro-B-type Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) and renal function parameters in a boy with a good outcome after craniopharyngioma surgery: 1/ Central diabetes insipidus (CDI) onset immediately after the operation, hypernatremia with peak serum sodium (SNa) 158 mmol/l) caused by free water polyuria (electrolyte-free water clearance, EWC 0...

Diencephalic cachexia (DС) is progressive weight loss despite a normal caloric intake and a satisfactory state of health, which is caused by hypothalamic lesions. This is a rare (about 100 cases were reported) and potentially fatal disorder of unknown pathogenesis. At present, there is no effective pharmacological therapy for the disorder. Cachexia may regress only if the tumor reduces in size, therefore the timely diagnosis and treatment are of vital importance for the patient. DС is typical of early childhood, and only a few cases have been reported in adults...

OBJECTIVE: Most studies in patients with craniopharyngioma did not investigate morbidity and mortality relative to the general population, nor evaluated risk factors for excess morbidity and mortality. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine excess morbidity and mortality, as well as their determinants in patients with craniopharyngioma. DESIGN: Hospital-based retrospective cohort study conducted between 1987-2014. METHODS: We included 144 Dutch and 80 Swedish patients with craniopharyngioma identified by a computer-based search in the medical records (105 females [47%], 112 patients with childhood-onset craniopharyngioma [50%], 3153 person-years of follow-up)...

OBJECTIVE: Craniopharyngiomas can be a surgical challenge for the pediatric neurosurgeon. Ideally, total removal must be achieved. However, the need to reduce surgical morbidity and preserve quality of life has led to a number of neurosurgical approaches in order to attain this goal. The aim of this article is to present an alternative surgical approach to these lesions and to provide the rationale for this technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical charts and operative records of eight pediatric patients harboring craniopharyngiomas who underwent surgical treatment using a supraorbital eyebrow approach (SOA) were reviewed from 2014 to 2016...

Survivors of childhood brain tumours (SCBT) have increased cardiometabolic risks, but the determinants of these risks are unclear. This systematic review aims to compare the prevalence of overweight and obesity as well as adiposity measures between SCBT and non-cancer controls. The PubMed, EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL and the Cochrane Library databases were searched. The primary outcomes were the prevalence of overweight and obesity based on body mass index. The secondary outcomes were adiposity measures including percent fat mass, waist-to-hip and waist-to-height ratios...

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment of retrochiasmatic craniopharyngiomas is associated with higher rates of complications, mortality, failure of complete removal, and recurrence when compared to craniopharyngiomas located elsewhere. These tumors lie behind the optic chiasm and, when large, can extend upward into the third ventricle and downward along the brain stem making their adequate exposure challenging. Most of the proposed techniques either employ a trans lamina terminalis route or require wide bony exposures...
