Brief Summary in Lay Language

The present investigation is a prospective, multicenter study evaluating craniopharyngioma
patients' prognoses following the various currently-practiced therapeutic strategies.Primary
goals of the study are to establish quality standards and compare the various therapy
strategies with respect to their effectiveness and impact on the quality of life of treated
patients. A stratified randomization of two treatment arms will be conducted with respect to
timing of postoperative irradiation for the subgroup of patients ≥5 years of age whose
tumors are incompletely resected. The researchers will investigate whether an immediate,
postoperative irradiation is superior to progression-contingent irradiation based on
alterations to quality of life (PEDQOL) from the time randomization is initiated (3rd month
post op) to 3 years after randomization. Progression-free survival and overall survival will
be examined as closely-related subgoals.Postoperative data will be evaluated via a
surveillance study for all complete resection patients as well as for those patients under 5
years of age regardless of their resection grade.

Primary Outcome

- Quality of life; time frame: 3 years after diagnosis; •Randomized investigation of children (≥ 5 years of age) and adolescent QoL changes (main goal assessment) following incomplete craniopharyngioma resections at primary diagnosis per QoL endpoint scores (PEDQOL "physical functions" domain) measured from 3rd month after surgery for 3 years after randomization; and the progression-free and total survival rates (subgoal assessments) relative to how these rates relate to postoperative irradiation timing (immediate postsurgery irradiation versus wait-and-see approach + progression-contingent irradiation of residual tumor).

Secondary Outcome

- Rate of Progression or relapse; time frame: 3 years after surgery; Compilation of applied therapy strategies for craniopharyngiomas in children and adolescents using data capture conforming to SIOP brain tumor groups
Evaluation of patients' remission status following the various therapy strategies/modalities for craniopharyngiomas using data detection consistent with SIOP brain tumor groups
Evaluation of the health status (ophthalmologic, neuropsychologic and endocrine conditions) and health-related QoL of children and adolescents following treatment of craniopharyngiomas using data capture conforming to SIOP brain tumor groups
