Abstract

We present a case of extracranial craniopharyngioma simulating a sphenoid sinus mucocele in a 12-year-old female who presented with progressive subacute left-sided visual disturbance. Although infrasellar craniopharyngioma is a rare entity, the presence of foci of calcification within the lesion is a useful finding for diagnosis.
