Sleep-Disordered Breathing Is Increased in Obese Adolescents with Craniopharyngioma Compared

Context: Retrospective studies suggest that adolescents with craniopharygnioma and hypothalamic obesity have increased sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).
Objectives: The objectives of this study were to compare the prevalence of SDB in adolescents with craniopharyngioma-related obesity compared with body mass index (BMI)-matched controls and to explore possible relationships between SDB, insulin resistance, and adipocytokines.
Design: This was a cross-sectional study of obese craniopharyngioma and obese control adolescents.
