Craniopharyngiomas: A Comprehensive Guide to Diagnosis, Treatment and Outcome 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. This reference provides a resource for specialists requiring a comprehensive overview of this rare form of tumor, outlining new diagnostic, imaging and surgical techniques, including endoscopic endonasal cranial base surgery, which enable successful neurosurgical intervention. With a better prognosis, patients require multidisciplinary management from neurology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, endocrinology, and neuropathology. The only comprehensive guide to the science, diagnosis and treatment of craniopharyngiomas Includes multidisciplinary management from neurology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, endocrinology, and neuropathology Detailed coverage of the impacts of new diagnostic, imaging and neurosurgical techniques including endoscopic endonasal cranial base surgery

This volume focuses on adult craniopharyngiomas, offering various perspectives. The first part of the book provides an up-to-date overview of the pathogenesis and management of adult craniopharyngiomas, helping readers understand the pathogenesis and molecular pathways. It highlights the importance of animal models for addressing molecular keys and for developing targeted therapies. The second part deals with clinical management, detailing the latest results in the era of endoscopic surgery, including the major contribution of the extended nasal endoscopic approaches for suprasellar and retrochiasmatic tumors. The book also discusses the key aspects of these tumors and how to manage them. The last part of the book addresses the future therapies and recurrences after surgery and radiotherapy. This volume is of interest to neurosurgeons, endocrinologists, paediatricians, radiologists and oncologists.

This book provides up-to-date coverage of the most relevant topics in the diagnosis and management of craniopharyngiomas. After introductory discussion of natural history and clinical presentation, individual chapters are devoted to pathological and molecular aspects, use of diagnostic imaging techniques, the surgical approach to craniopharyngiomas, radiotherapy and radiosurgery, and associated endocrine disturbances. A particular feature of the book is the detailed attention devoted to the metabolic consequences of the disease and related treatments, including obesity and electrolyte disturbances, and to cognitive alterations. This book will be of value to oncologists, neurosurgeons, and endocrinologists by assisting in diagnostic workup, delivery of appropriate treatment, and management of the serious metabolic and endocrine consequences.

Craniopharyngiomas are a type of brain tumour in the suprasellar region with benign histological and cellular features. Clinical manifestations of craniopharyngiomas include decreased vision, hypopituitarism, hypothalamus dysfunction, fluid and electrolyte imbalance, glycometabolism, lipid metabolism and obesity. Craniopharyngiomas can show some characteristics of malignant tumours, such as invasion to the surrounding tissues, repetitious recurrence, and rapid growth. These characteristics cause considerable difficulty in patient treatment for neurosurgeons all over the world. This volume presents detailed information about craniopharyngioma anatomy, classification and treatment.
