Abstract: Autonomic disturbances due to hypothalamic injury that result in postoperative death are rare complications following surgery for craniopharyngioma. We discuss the case of a child who died due to hypothalamic injury following radical excision of a multi-compartmental craniopharyngioma. Mechanisms and clinical manifestations of hypothalamic injury and ways to avoid this fatal complication are discussed. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
