Central neurocytomas are rare neuroectodermal tumors believed to arise from the subependymal matrix of the lateral ventricles. Intraventricular central neurocytoma is a benign primary central nervous system tumor of neuronal origin that is usually located within the lateral and third ventricles. Central neurocytoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of lesions involving bilateral lateral ventricles with symmetrical growth around the center of septum pellucidum in young patients. Here, we report the radiological and histopathological findings in a rare case of intraventricular central neurocytoma.
