PMID:  8613819     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors present a case of a gigantic cystic craniopharyngioma that was treated with intratumoral injections of bleomycin. The mass had eroded the skull base and extended to the sphenoid bone. A total of eight intratumoral injections through an Ommaya reservoir were given. Six months after treatment, there was complete regression of the lesion and improvement in both visual and endocrinological symptomatology.
