ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Intraventricular Tumors

History: Unremitting headache for three weeks (the child was holding his head and screaming).

Findings: Lobulated intraventricular mass

Ddx: Choroid plexus papilloma Choroid plexus carcinoma Intraventricular meningioma Ependymoma

Exam: Papilledema

No MeSH data available.


Central Neurocytoma (CNC) is a tumor of mature neuronal cells.  They are most commonly attached to the septum pellucidum or in the third ventricle.  They were mistakenly called 'intraventricular oligodendroglioma' until special stains and EM revealed suggested their origin from neuronal cells.  They may be complicated by spontaneous hemorrhage. They are hyperdense without contrast on CT, and may contain both small cysts and calcifications.
