A case of intraventricular tumor presenting with intraventricular hemorrhage in a 38-year-old man is reported. Initial symptoms were an acute onset of headache with projectile vomiting. CT-scan revealed intraventricular hemorrhage. Cerebral angiography did not show any vascular malformation. MRI study, performed initially and several days after, disclosed and confirmed the presence of an intraventricular mass. The patient was operated on via a transfrontal route, and a complete tumor removal was achieved. Pathological examination was consistent with a central neurocytoma. Two similar cases from the literature are discussed with respect to differential diagnosis and practical management considerations.
