Neonatal craniopharyngioma: CT and ultrasonographic features

J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1988 Sep-Oct;12(5):858-61.


A case of craniopharyngioma in a neonate is reported and the literature on neonatal craniopharyngioma reviewed. First reported in 1952 and previously considered rare, the diagnosis of these neonatal tumors has increased with the use of noninvasive imaging including CT and ultrasound. The CT and ultrasound features of this uncommon but potentially treatable entity are described.
