Current treatment regimens for pediatric CPA are limited to surgery and radiation therapy. This pilot study seeks to identify biologically rational therapeutics for the medical treatment of adamantinomatous CPA by confirming the overexpression of specific molecules.
: Pediatrics with Tumors
Pediatrics who have a tumor specimen that is suspected to be craniopharyngioma, but is deemed superfluous to the clinical care of the patient (e.g. pathological diagnosis).
Procedure: - Tumor and Blood Specimens
If available, specimen will be sampled from within the tumor, and not include portions of the tumor capsule. If the tumor includes a cyst, fluid from the cyst will be sampled if available. For each tumor specimen, a companion sample of blood that would otherwise be disposed of through usual clinical practice in the operating room will also be collected.
