Abstract

Central neurocytomas comprise nearly half of adult intraventricular neoplasms. The median age of onset is 34 years. It is typically a low-grade neoplasm (World Health Organization grade II), although some cases of malignant neurocytomas have been described. We present a rare case of an atypical central neurocytoma with craniospinal dissemination, including both imaging and pathologic findings.
