Management of craniopharyngioma

Rachel Crowley

Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, Republic of Ireland.

The experience of patients with craniopharyngioma is not benign; these patients are subject to increased mortality compared to age- and gender-matched peers and increased morbidity from hypopituitarism, obesity, thirst and electrolyte disorders and sleep disturbance. This talk will explore the challenges specific to management of this patient cohort, how they differ from other patients with tumoural hypopituitarism, strategies to minimize hypothalamic damage and how to assess such patients beyond standard diagnosis of pituitary dysfunction.
