CNS tumours and their treatment commonly lead to endocrinopathies in children. Advances in surgical techniques, chemotherapy and radiotherapy have improved the survival in children with CNS tumours however they have also added to the late effect burden. Since the pituitary and hypothalamus regulate many important bodily functions, loss in their function leads to major derangements in growth and hormonal milieu. This article is a review of clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of endocrinopathies encountered in common sellar and supra-sellar CNS tumours in children. The management is divided into mainly two sections: immediate (peri and post-operative) and long term.
