Abstract

In this case report, we describe 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. A primary intraventricular hydatid cyst is a rare phenomenon, which is most commonly in the lateral ventricle. After thorough research, only two cases of hydatid cyst have been discovered in the third ventricle. Therefore, we present an interesting case of a three-year-old girl with nausea, vomiting, and progressive drowsiness that upon neuroradiological examination was found to have a large, spherical, well-defined cystic lesion within the third ventricle. The patient underwent surgery via anterior interhemispheric transcallosal approach, and the cyst was successfully removed using Dowling?s technique.
