Abstract

The pathogenesis, ultrastructure, and location of craniopharyngiomas of childhood are discussed. CT scanning and contrast cisternography have added to our ability to characterize these tumors. The operative approach is dictated by the size and location of the tumor. Our experience with 25 tumors indicates the majority ofthese tumors can be totally removed. Unfortunately, some children die later, tumor free, of minor respiratory illness.
