Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book provides up-to-date coverage of the most relevant topics in the diagnosis and management of craniopharyngiomas. After introductory discussion of natural history and clinical presentation, individual chapters are devoted to pathological and molecular aspects, use of diagnostic imaging techniques, the surgical approach to craniopharyngiomas, radiotherapy and radiosurgery, and associated endocrine disturbances. A particular feature of the book is the detailed attention devoted to the metabolic consequences of the disease and related treatments, including obesity and electrolyte disturbances, and to cognitive alterations. This book will be of value to oncologists, neurosurgeons, and endocrinologists by assisting in diagnostic workup, delivery of appropriate treatment, and management of the serious metabolic and endocrine consequences.
