Central neurocytomas are WHO grade II neuroepithelial intraventricular tumors with fairly characteristic imaging features that can cause obstructive hydrocephalus and manifest as increased intracranial pressure. Here we present the case of a 32-year-old man with no known chronic disease presenting with headache and papilledema of 2 months duration. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass lesion growing from the septum pellucidum level into both lateral ventricles, measuring approximately 67x60 mm in size, containing cystic areas consistent with neurocytoma.
