In this chapter, based on interhemispheric approaches including the corridor through fronto-basal, anterior part of interhemispheric space and also through interfonix corridor, we illustrated the advantage of different approaches. And the related structures such as, pituitary gland, pituitary stalk, and hypothalamus were depicted under such surgical view. The other accessory structures, for example, optic pathway, sphenoid sinus and also the cavernous sinus were described as well. Moreover, the morphological features of craniopharyngioma were analyzed and then how to choose the most appropriate approaches was discussed.

Keywords: Anatomy, Craniopharyngioma, Craniotomy, Interhemispheric approach.
