A Latent Profile Analysis of Sleep, Anxiety, and Mood in Youth with Craniopharyngioma
CONCLUSIONS: Youth with craniopharyngioma demonstrate poor sleep and EDS. Those with delayed SOL and prolonged WASO are particularly vulnerable to disrupted nighttime sleep, which may significantly compound EDS. Disrupted sleep was not associated with anxiety or depression, which may be related to the overall poor sleep and daytime sleepiness or to timing, as patients were early in their treatment course. Further study should evaluate the factors underlying sleepiness and daytime function in patients with craniopharyngioma.PMID:34719997 | DOI:10.1080/15402002.2021.1996363 (Source: Behavioral Sleep Medicine)

Management of childhood-onset craniopharyngioma in Italy: A multicenter seven year follow-up study of 145 patients
CONCLUSIONS: CP is often diagnosed late also in Italy with TC more frequent than TS surgical approach. Post-surgery complications were not rare and hypopituitarism developed almost in all cases. BMI shows a tendency to increase overtime.PMID:34718649 | DOI:10.1210/clinem/dgab784 (Source: The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism)

Artificial Neural Network Modelling Using Pre-Operative MRI Features to Predict Obesity in Pediatric Patients With Craniopharyngioma Treated With Proton Therapy
CONCLUSION: A predictive model of post-treatment BMI increase for pediatric patients with craniopharyngioma was developed with relatively high accuracy and AUC. This model could facilitate early identification of patients at risk for obesity after treatment for close surveillance and intervention.PMID:34700733 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijrobp.2021.07.549 (Source: Ann Oncol)

Presse Med. 2021 Oct 21:104078. doi: 10.1016/j.lpm.2021.104078. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCraniopharyngiomas are rare epithelial tumours situated primarily in the sellar/parasellar region, occurring along the path of the craniopharyngeal duct. Whilst classed as histologically benign tumours, their unpredictable growth pattern and proximity to vital structures including the optic chiasm, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland renders them a considerable threat, with significant associated morbidity and increase in mortality. Occurring both in child and adulthood, their clinical manifestations are broad, commonly with symptom...
