Colloid cyst of anterior 3rd Ventricle in a young male presented with worsening headache and unexplained falls. Excised completely by interhemispheric transcallosal approach without any new neurological deficits.
Colloid cysts are benign cystic lesions which commonly occur at the anterior 3rd ventricle near the foramen of monro. It may present with features of hydrocephalus due to obstruction of CSF flow, drop attacks, memory disturbances and rarely sudden death. Sometimes small colloid cysts may be detected incidentally on routine imaging.
CT and MRI brain are adequate to diagnose these lesions.
Surgery is the treatment of choice for symptomatic colloid cysts. Endoscopic or microscopic excision should be done depending upon the extent of ventricular enlargement.
Interhemispheric transcallosal approach allows a minimally invasive corridor to these lesions for complete excision.
Postoperative complications in the form of bleeding, intraventricular haemorrhage, memory deficits, speechlessnesses and weakness of one side of body occur in 2-5% cases.
Complete excision is curative without any risk of recurrence.
