Abstract

In summary, Rathke's cleft cysts in the extracranial skull base are rare. Untreated, they can grow to involve structures in the sphenoclival region or the cavernous sinus. Surgical removal via an approach that offers maximal visualization and minimal morbidity affords the best treatment for patients with such lesions.
