Abstract: Ectopic recurrence of craniopharyngioma is extremely rare following transcranial procedures of primary tumour. Here we describe 3 new cases of ectopic recurrence along the surgical route after transcranial gross total resection of primary tumour. All 3 cases are male adults--2 of them had papillary-type tumour with the other being adamantinomatous. All ectopic tumours were safely resected via repeated craniotomy. Long-term surveillance of patients with resected craniopharyngioma is essential.

“…The involvement of the third ventricle may derive from craniopharyngioma's development along the migration of the Rathke's pouch close to the infundibulum and attached to the third ventricle floor, or from residual squamous epithelium of the stomodeum embedded within the ventricular system at early stages of pituitary gland development (24). Aggressive growth may also lead to tumor's invasion into the lateral ventricles through the Monro's foramina, with only 12 cases reported in the current literature (25)(26)(27)(28)(29). A total of 4 cases of fourth ventricle CP-Vs were described, defined as ectopic craniopharyngiomas invading the cerebellopontine angle (11,(18)(19)(20), with some authors suggesting a potential relationship with Gardner's syndrome (30).…”

“…All reported cases underwent surgery. 1,3,[5][6][7] Ectopic recurrence can occur over a wide range of time after resection (1 month-26 years), with a median of 4 years. Equal prevalence was seen in male and female patients (43% female, 57% male).…”
