About this book

Introduction

Craniopharyngioma represents a major challenge for neurosurgeons, pediatricians, and endocrinologists. This so-called benign tumor is a real threat to quality of life and life itself. This book discusses the various therapeutic strategies and suggests multimodal treatment approaches, including microsurgery, stereotaxis, and alternative treatments. The rationale for choice of therapy is supported by biological, clinical, and neuroradiological data and therapeutic results of a large series of case studies from all over the world are reported. Finally, guidelines for further development and new topics for research and treatment are offered.
