YEARS HUGE CRANIOPHARYNGIOMA WITH MASSIVE INTRAVENTRICULAR GROWTH AND
The patient came
to the clinic 25-January-2002 complaining of
headache with blurred vision for more than 1
year with progressive course. CT-scan of the
drain was done 11-October-2000 reported as
MRI of the brain done recently showing huge
craniopharyngioma with massive intraventricular
and retrosellar extension.
On examination: The patient has left sided
Bifrontal craniotomy with
mobilization and preservation of the olfactory
tracts was achieved. The tumor mass was seen
under the chiasm and it was resected in piece
meal fashion. Radical resection was achieved. It
was necessary to create small flap at the base
of the bone defect to gain better exposure of
the intraventricular part of the tumor from
under the chiasm.
Routine closure of the wound.
The patient was kept in ventilator for 24 hours
after then he showed acceptable recovery and was
discharge after one week.
The patient was seen several times in the clinic
after surgery and control MRI was done
07-March-2002 and 18-May-2002 were the same
confirming radical resection of the tumor. The
patient did not show diabetes incipidus nor
pituitary insufficiency. The pituitary stalk and
the olfactory tracts were anatomically and
The patient had huge craniopharyngioma causing
secondary hydrocephalus. Radical resection is
the best goal to achieve in this case.
