Craniopharyngiomas (CPs) are rare benign suprasellar tumors. The standard treatment for CP is complete surgical resection or partial resection followed by adjuvant radiotherapy (RT). Adjuvant RT is typically administered at a total dose of 54 Gy with 1.8 Gy/fraction. The current study reported the case of a young patient affected by recurrent craniopharyngioma, who was treated with irradiation subsequent to several surgical resections. Image fusion and intensity‑modulated radiation therapy techniques were employed to deliver a high total dose (63 Gy with 2.1 Gy/fraction) with no severe acute toxicities recorded. At the 6‑year follow‑up, no radiological or clinical signs of disease progression or late sequelae were observed.
