Abstract

FALAVIGNA, Asdrubal; FERRAZ, Fernando Antonio Patriani; MADALOSSO, Fabiola A.  and  HOHMANN, Fábio B.. Rathke's pouch cyst: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2003, vol.61, n.2A, pp. 281-284. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X2003000200024.

The Rathke's pouch cysts are a relatively common autopsy finding, but rarely have they been reported as a clinical entity. We report a Rathke's pouch cyst patient's case with visual impairment and emphasize aspects like clinical presentation, radiological studies and treatment. Many published series about this pathology have been reviewed and compared with the present case.

Keywords : Rathke's pouch cyst; endocrine disorders; pituitary tumor.
