Abstract

The numerous pathology reports on craniopharyngioma describe the classical features of squamous epithelium and keratin. Relatively little attention has been paid to its stroma and the surrounding tissue. We focused our observation on these two areas in a retrospective study of craniopharyngiomas in 36 operative cases and 5 autopsy cases. The tumor interdigitated with the brain and pituitary gland. At the interface, the brain was markedly gliotic with Rosenthal fibers simulating pilocytic astrocytoma. The tumor stroma had reactive changes and commonly showed cyst formation and calcification.
