abstract

  • A case of a symptomatic suprasellar Rathke's cleft cyst in a 35-year-old woman is presented. The cyst wall and contents showed large collections of xanthomatous cells. With the exception of a few pituitary hormone-positive cells, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features of the lining epithelium in this case of Rathke's cleft cyst were indistinguishable from colloid cysts of the third ventricle with similar secondary changes.
