Introduction: Colloid cysts are very rare in all brain tumors and almost always located in the anteriosuperior of the third ventricle, between fornix, surround of foramen monro. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of surgery, address controversial issues in the treatment of symptomatic colloid cysts and review of the literature.Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients with colloid cyst who underwent surgery in our department between 2000-2017. They were evaluated based on clinical features, imaging features, surgical approaches and outcomes.
Results: Twenty four cases of colloid cyst of the third ventricle were operated upon between 2000- 2017. Fourteen cases were male and 10 cases were female. Their ages were between 24 and 60 years old. 16 patients were operated on by using anterior transcallosal approach and 8 patients by using transcortical transventricular approach. In all patients total excision of the lesions achieved and there was no mortality.Conclusion: Surgery is a safe and effective treatment for colloid cyst of the third ventricle. We reviewed the surgical approach for colloid cyst of the third ventricle and discussed with the literature
