Abstract:Distant intraventricular metastasis is extremely rare in childhood craniopharyngioma. Here, we report the isolated posterior ventricular recurrence of an adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma, in a child previously treated with surgery and proton beam therapy for local progression. The importance of surveillance imaging is highlighted, while specific surgical approaches and techniques are considered.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
