Introduction: Craniopharyngiomas are benign tumors in the suprasellar region that have encouraging survival rates between 77-93%. Unfortunately, long-term sequelae are frequent, resulting in excessive endocrine and metabolic morbidity, including premature cardiovascular disease and reduced bone health.Objective: To determine the prevalence of unfavorable body composition and low bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with craniopharyngioma.<p class="...

Introduction: Patients with craniopharyngioma (CP) suffer from pituitary deficiencies and hypothalamic damage, resulting in obesity and impaired bone health. Little is known about long-term changes in body composition and bone mineral density (BMD).Methods: Dutch and Swedish patients were included in this retrospective longitudinal study if they had DXA-scan (body composition/BMD) data available at age of 18 years or older.
