Schematic overview of the human hypothalamus. Craniopharyngiomas most likely arise from epithelial remnants of the craniopharyngeal duct or the Rathke pouch (light yellow bar). The hypothalamus consists of many hypothalamic nuclei, which are all highly connected through neural pathways. The connection between the arcuate nucleus and paraventricular nucleus (PVN) is emphasized.
