Intraventricular cavernomas (IVC) are rare entities. We report a case of incidentally detected intraventricular cavernoma (IVC) in frontal horn of the lateral ventricle in which the diagnosis was established by typical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features. The patient has been kept on follow up as surgical resection is not recommended in asymptomatic cavernomas. IVC should be considered in differentials of intraventricular mass to avoid unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures and ineffi cient management of this benign lesion.
