Abstract

The case being presented is that of a 6-year-old boy with craniopharyngioma. The discussion centers on the controversy regarding the optimal therapy for craniopharyngioma: surgery alone, radiotherapy alone, or combined therapy using both surgery and radiation. This patient was treated with biopsy and radiotherapy and the reasons for that decision are discussed.
