Hormonal and regional complications of craniopharyngomas

Faraoun Khadra , Farida Chentli

Background: The craniopharyngioma is a non-endocrine tumor, developed along the infundibulo-pituitary axis, from the 3rd ventricle to sphenoid, histologically benign but locally invasive. It is a tumor with serious complications because of its location, its considerable potential for extension, its tendency to recur, and its adhesions to neighbouring structures. Our aim is to assess hormonal, neuro-ophthalmological and metabolic complications at the diagnosis of cra...
