Central neurocytoma (CN) is an uncommon brain tumor arising primarily in the lateral ventricular near the foramen of Monro and approximately accounting for 0.1-0.5% of all primary tumors of the central nervous system. NIH Springer Verlag. Conclusion: Other differentials for an intraventricular mass including an ependymoma or intraventricular metastasis are felt less likely given the imaging appearances. Most of the patients present with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure secondary to the obstructive hydrocephalus [1, 2, 4].

To evaluate clinical findings and radiological characteristics of central neurocytoma (CN) in 18 patients and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) features in one additional case. The majority of CNC are located entirely within the ventricles, close to the foramen of Monro [3-4]. Central neurocytomas have a well-delineated, smooth or lobulated margin and are moderately vascular. Studies comparing intraventricular oligodendroglioma (IVO) and central neurocytoma (CN) in terms of their clinical, radiological and pathological features are scarce. Objectives: To evaluate clinical findings and radiological characteristics of central neurocytoma (CN) in 18 patients and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) features in one additional case. The tumor location is an important imaging finding as the tumor is typically midline and broad based attachment to the septum pellucidum. Would you like email updates of new search results?
