Cerebellopontine angle craniopharyngioma: case report and literature review.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The authors report an unusual case of adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma occurring in isolation in the cerebellopontine angle of a 12-year-old female. The patient presented with a 1-year history of nausea, vomiting, and headache. MRI revealed a left cerebellopontine angle tumor without connection to the suprasellar space. Following near-total resection, histological review confirmed the lesion as an adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma. This is only the third published report of craniopharyngioma occurring in isolation in the cerebellopontine angle. The case report and a brief review of the literature are presented.
