A tumor of Rathke's cleft origin was studied, which showed some histologic features consistent with craniopharyngioma, but also had ciliated and mucin-containing cells more commonly observed in Rathke's cleft cysts. The combination of features provides further evidence that craniopharyngiomas and Rathke's cleft cysts have a common embryonic origin.
