We present a patient harboring a large squamous papillary craniopharyngioma. The diagnosis was confirmed by a stereotactic biopsy. Because of vegetative symptoms indicating hypothalamic derangement, we were reluctant to perform surgical resection. Following fractionated megavoltage radiotherapy, MR imaging and CT demonstrated complete regression of the craniopharyngioma and the patient recovered from endocrine deficiency, chiasmal syndrome and vegetative hypothalamic symptoms.
