Abstract

Adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma is a locally aggressive neoplasm with a significant rate of recurrence. This is not in keeping with the current designation of a WHO grade I neoplasm. Subtotal resection is associated with less mortality/morbidity but a higher recurrence rate. Given the high numbers of "silent" defects, formal visual field testing should be performed in all patients with craniopharyngiomas.
