Book Description :

This astute volume brings together the latest expert research on adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas (ACPs). ACPs are histologically benign but clinically aggressive tumors exhibiting a high propensity for local invasion into the hypothalamus, optic and vascular structures. These tumors, as well as the current treatments, may result in pan-hypopituitarism, diabetes insipidus, morbid obesity followed by type II diabetes mellitus, blindness, as well as serious behavioral and psychosocial impairments. Exploring in detail advances in both the understanding of tumor biology as well as clinical advances in patient management are explored in detail, this book will also look towards potential new treatment approaches. Basic Research and Clinical Aspects of Adamantinomatous Craniopharyngioma is the first book compiling all current research on ACPs. Mouse and human studies have unequivocally demonstrated that mutations in CTNNB1 encoding -catenin underlie the etiology of the majority, if not all ACP tumors. Genetic studies in mice have shown that ACPs are tumors of the pituitary gland and not of the hypothalamus as previously thought, and are derived from Rathke’s pouch precursors. In addition, a role for tissue-specific adult pituitary stem cells has been revealed as causative of ACP. Together, these studies have provided novel insights into the molecular and cellular etiology as well as the pathogenesis of human ACP. Finally, this volume covers new treatment approaches that have been shown to be effective both in reducing ACP burden as well as reducing the morbidity associated with therapy.

Book Description :

Craniopharyngiomas are benign, partly cystic embryogenic malformations of the sellar region, presumably derived from Rathke cleft epithelium. With an overall incidence of 0.5–2 new cases per million population per year, approximately 30-50% of all cases represent childhood craniopharyngioma. Typical manifestations at primary diagnosis are headache, visual impairment, polyuria/polydypsia, growth retardation, and weight gain. One of the biggest challenges in treating craniopharyngioma is identifying the best candidates for the radical versus the conservative approach. It appears there is a trend towards radiotherapy in centers with past prevalent surgical approaches, and towards more radical surgical treatment strategies in centers historically conservative-oriented. There are current prospective studies underway on a national and multinational level to adopt strategies tailored to risk factors for morbidity and QOL. Therapy of choice in patients with favorable tumor localization is total resection with the intention to maintain optical nerve and hypothalamic-pituitary functions. In patients with unfavorable tumor localization (hypothalamic tumor involvement), a limited resection followed by local irradiation is recommended. The overall survival rates are high (92%). Recurrences after complete resection and progressions of residual tumor after incomplete resection are anticipated subsequent events after primary surgery. In clinical practice, the timing of postoperative residual tumor irradiation is both unclear and inconsistently regarded. Some favor immediate postoperative irradiation in the event of life-impairing clinical conditions, proactively preventing tumor progression. On the other hand, some favor a wait-and-see procedure, delaying irradiation in order to reduce both its necessity and the negative consequences associated with radiation therapy. Inarguably, immediate postoperative irradiation significantly delays tumor progression. However, progression-contingent irradiation has proved effective, as overall survival is statistically unaffected by this wait-and-see strategy. Accordingly, the appropriate time point of irradiation after incomplete resection is currently under investigation in a randomized trial (KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007). Quality of life is substantially reduced in appr. 50% of long-term survivors due to sequelae, notably extreme obesity due to hypothalamic involvement. Due to the lack of satisfactory long-term treatment modalities for hypothalamic sequelae, further research on molecular characteristics of craniopharyngioma, pathophysiology of hypothalamic disorders, and pharmaceutical agents to treat hypothalamic obesity are warranted. Risk-adapted surgical strategies at initial diagnosis should aim at a maximal degree of resection, respecting the integrity of optical and hypothalamic structures in order to prevent severe sequelae and therein minimizing consequences that could negative impact patient QOL. Because initial hypothalamic tumor involvement has an apriori effect on the clinical course, childhood craniopharyngioma should be recognized as a chronic disease requiring constant monitoring of the consequences and medical resources for treatment in order to provide not only optimal QOL for patients, but also to garner additional information with the intent of minimizing what at present are severe consequences of both the disease and its treatment.

Book Description :

Craniopharyngiomas (CPs) have had a prominent place in neurosurgery due to both the technical difficulty and controversy regarding the optimal treatment of these benign tumors. Harvey Cushing famously described craniopharyngiomas in 1936 as "the most forbidding of the intracranial tumors." Seventy years later, Rutka still wrote: "There is no other primary brain tumor that evokes more passion, emotion, and as a result, controversy than does the CP." Craniopharyngiomas comprise 1-2% of all brain tumors and occur in a bimodal distribution, with 40% of cases occurring between age 5-15 years and 60% occurring at ages >55 years. The differential diagnosis for craniopharyngioma can include a variety of entities, including pituitary macroadenoma, metastasis, Rathke's cleft cyst, colloid cyst, glioma, meningioma, germinoma, abscess, sarcoid, or aneurysm. Imaging characteristics usually include a solid cystic lesion, speckled with calcifications in 50-80% of craniopharyngiomas (especially pediatric patients), as well a presentation with hypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus, which influence clinical thinking toward establishing this diagnosis.

Book Description :

The American Cancer Society anticipates that 16,500 patients will be diagnosed with primary malignant tumors of the central nervous system in 2000, with about 200,000 individuals presenting with brain metastases. The advances in the treatment of solid tumors have contributed significantly to the major increase in metastatic cancers to the brain. Of the primary malignant tumors of the brain, more than 50% are high-grade gliomas; the incidence has been increasing among older patients over the past decade. Major developments in new technologies in the treatment of primary brain tumors as well as metastatic disease are covered in depth. Even though management is difficult, advances are being made. This book is a concerted effort to present data regarding basic science research efforts alongside their translation into clinical practice using combined, integrated multimodal programs of treatment. Progress has been made, but innovatice approaches need to be pursued.
