A case of huge craniopharyngioma which was removed radically is presented. A 14-year-old girl was hospitalized because of the impairment of vision and a history of generalized seizures. The computed tomogram of the brain disclosed the huge mass consisting of a large cystic part extending to the frontal base and solid part medial and posterior to the cystic. Despite of the large size and adhesion to the vital structures, the tumor was removed successfully. To remove the tumor radically, it seemed to be important not to interrupt the outer structure of the mass during dissection. The postoperative course was uneventful except transient diabetes insipidus. We report this case with brief review of the references.
Key Words: Craniopharyngioma; Radical removal; Operating microscope; Diabetes insipidus
