A Comprehensive Guide to Diagnosis, Treatment, and Outcome
This is a comprehensive guide to the science, diagnosis and treatment of craniopharyngiomas, rare brain tumors that grow near the pituitary gland. Even though these tumors are generally benign, due to the location, prognosis was often bleak. New diagnostic, imaging and surgical techniques, including endoscopic endonasal cranial base surgery, now enable successful neurosurgical intervention. With a better prognosis, patients require multidisciplinary management from neurology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, endocrinology, and neuropathology. This reference will provide a resource for these specialists requiring a comprehensive overview of this rare form of tumor.
