Intraventricularmeningiomasare rare intracranial tumors account for 0.5-2% of all meningiomas. Most intraventricularmeningiomas present between the 3rd and 6th decades with a recognized female predilection. We described here a case of large intraventricular meningioma with mass effectwho was treated successfully in our institute. A 41 year male patient having headache, blurring of vision and convulsions was diagnosed as a case of right ventricular space occupying lesion (SOL). He underwent right temperopariatal craniotomy with excision of right lateral ventricular SOL in our institute. On histopathology, it was found meningioma grade 1. Patient had tremendous clinical improvement postoperatively. We can conclude from this case that large intraventricularmeningiomas if treated properly these patients can have better outcome.
