Craniopharyngiomas are Neoplasms which arise from the craniopharyngeal duct usually located in suprasellar and sellar regions. Ectopic locations include the third ventricle, nasopharynx, sphenoid bone, cerebellopontine angle and the pineal region. We report a case of a squamous-papillary variant of craniopharyngioma essentially in the foramen of Monro with a small stalk in the suprasellar cistern suggesting its true site of origin and its unusual pattern of diffusion restriction. To the best of our knowledge, craniopharyngioma does not show diffusion restriction and hence, the aim of presenting this case is that craniopharyngioma to be included in suprasellar lesions showing diffusion restriction.
