Abstract

(1) Postsurgical data on IQ, psychosocial and psychosexual function is presented on twenty patients with a history of childhood or teenage craniopharyngioma. (2) A specific deficit in Performance as compared with Verbal IQ was observed even though Full Scale IQ was no different from the test norms. (3) Social isolation, low energy expenditure and diminished frequencies of erotic behavior were typical features of these patients even though appropriate hormonal replacement was given postsurgically. (4) Deficits in hypothalamic pathways and/or the effects of protracted social isolation appear to be more important for the development of psychosexual behavior in hypopituitary patients than is postpubertal hormonal status.
