Seven MRI observations of presumed Rathke's cleft cysts in infants and children are reported. Age ranged between 6 months and 13 years. Size of the cysts ranged between 4 and 20 mm. While 3 small cysts were detected incidentally, 4 were large enough to cause symptoms secondary to compression of the pituitary gland and suprasellar components. The MRI appearance of the Rathke's cleft cysts varied according to their nature. MRI provides a major contribution to the diagnosis of these lesions; nevertheless, it often remains difficult to differentiate complex Rathke's cleft cysts from cystic craniopharyngiomas. The difficulties related to this differentiation are discussed.
