During the past decades, cancer survival increased substantially in both children and adults. Consequently, long-term complications of cancer and its treatment became increasingly important. Studies on late effects of cancer treatment focused predominantly on survivors of malignant tumours. However, benign neoplasms may also cause long-term complications. The aim of this PhD-project was to examine long-term endocrine and metabolic sequelae as well as their determinants in patients treated for cancer with a special focus on patients treated for craniopharyngioma. A full spectrum of endocrine and metabolic late effects was investigated.
