Craniopharyngiomas are benign tumors that occur at the base of the brain, above the pituitary gland. The term comes from:
- Cranio, meaning head
- Pharyng, meaning throat
- Oma, meaning condition
Craniopharyngiomas nearly always involve the pituitary stalk, the connection between the pituitary gland and the brain.
