Purpose: To determine the risk of developing hypopituitarism after cranial irradiation for skull base meningiomas. Cranial irradiation is often chosen as first treatment in skull base meningiomas to avoid risk to proximally-located critical structures. While cranial irradiation has been associated with high risk of inducing hypopituitarism, few studies concern meningiomas.Methods and materials: Fifty-two adult patients receiving photon-beam therapyfor sk...
