Craniopharyngiomas represent approximately the 6 and 10% of intracranial tumors in the infancy. Clinical manifestations can vary from an asymptomatic status to a wide spectrum of neurological, psychological, visual and endocrine symptoms. A 15 year-old female patient, attending to the external service of neurology at "Pepe Portilla" Provincial Children Hospital, Pinar del Rio, presented a picture of headache and vomits. Several examinations were completed to establish the diagnosis of Craniopharyngioma by means of a simple cranial tomography. She underwent an Endoscopic Surgery and showed a satisfactory evolution.
