Craniopharyngioma represents approximately 6-10% of pediatric brain tumors. The clinical presentation of pediatric patients with craniopharyngioma consists of a broad spectrum of symptoms that range from asymptomatic to endocrine, visual, or psychological disorders. We describe a case of giant craniopharyngioma diagnosed by CT scan in a 35 months old child. He was referred and admitted to the hospital due to severe malnutrition.

Keywords : pediatric brain tumors; craniopharyngioma; severe malnutrition.
