Title: Visual Outcomes, Visual Fields, and Optical Coherence Tomography in Paediatric Craniopharyngioma.

Abstract: Ten patients with craniopharyngioma treated for the first time when younger than 18 were included. This study reviews the visual outcomes and provides information on visual field (VF) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) examination of craniopharyngioma. The best kappa concordance coefficients between VF and OCT parameters of atrophy were obtained for the ganglion cell (GC) thickness and the mean retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness. The agreement between GC colour maps and VF defects was good. Optic nerve compression may be detected by RNFL measurement and GC analysis, and this may be valuable to predict visual recovery and in uncooperative patients to evaluate visual damage.
