Abstract

Third ventricular colloid cyst is slow-growing benign tumor comprising <1% of intracranial tumors. Previously it was removed by interhemispheric transcallosal or transcortical approach. Now a days, endoscopic removal of colloid cyst is a popular option because it is less invasive, panoramic view helps in total removal of tumor. Here we are reporting a 8 years old boy presented with occasional headache, vomiting, seizure and loss of consciousness for 3 months. Neuro-imaging revealed anterior third ventricular colloid cyst. We removed the tumor completely with rigid neuroendoscope which was confirmed by histopathology. After three months follow up patient was quiet healthy.
