ABSTRACT
The craniopharyngima has been known to be congenital origin and primary tumor of childhood. The craniopharyngioma may be found at all ages, though nearly one half in the first twenty years of life and equally in either sex. Important differences exist between younger and older patients. In children, signs of increased intracranial pressure, endocrine Abnormality and radiological calcification are common. In adults, mental disturbance becomes of increasing importance as well as remaining visual failure and endocrine disturbance. Because of slow growing rate of tumor in adult, subtotal excision is recommended. A 39-year-old male patient, suffering from agitation memory disturbance and almost total blindness, was diagnosed craniopharyngioma by neuroradiologic examinations. After surgical treatment, mental symptoms and visual acuity improved much more than before operation.
