Abstract

A primary intraventricular hydatid cyst is a very rare phenomenon, which is mostly located in the lateral ventricle. To the best of our knowledge, only two cases of third ventricle hydatid cyst have been reported. Herein, we present a very rare case of third ventricle hydatid cyst in a four- year-old boy with nausea, vomiting, and progressive drowsiness. Neuroradiological examination revealed a large, spherical, well-defined cystic lesion within the third ventricle. The patient underwent surgery using the anterior interhemispheric transcallosal approach, and the cyst was successfully removed using the Dowling's technique. In this case report, we described the first case of transcallosal removal of a rare third ventricle hydatid cyst, which can be considered in the differential diagnosis of suprasellar arachnoid cysts. Caution must be taken in determining the best surgical approach to prevent unexpected complications. © 2020 Elsevier B.V.
