Rathke's cleft cyst (RCC) are benign, epithelium-lined sellar and suprasellar cysts believed to originate from remnants of the Rathke pouch. Here, we report a rare case of entirely suprasellar RCC in a 4.5-year-old child causing hypopituitarism, who presented to us with bilateral cryptorchidism. Subsequently we discuss the distinct rarity of entirely suprasellar RCC presenting in this fashion and the relevant literature is also discussed.
