We report a case of a 45-year-old male patient with intraventricular cystic meningioma located in the left lateral ventricle. He presented with complaints of global headache, progressively increasing loss of memory, and frequent episodes of abnormal behavior, of 1 month duration. At the time of hospital admission, his general and neurological examination was normal. Neuroimaging studies showed a left lateral ventricular enhancing mass, composed of mixed solid and cystic areas. The tumor was completely excised via the anterior transcallosal approach. A histological examination revealed a meningothelial meningioma without any atypia. The aim of this report is to present the occurrence of an intraventricular cystic meningioma.
