Oligodendrogliomas arising primarily in the ventricle are quite rare. A 27-year-old male patient presented with features of raised intracranial pressure, forgetfulness, diplopia, and blurring of vision. Axial computed tomography scan brain showed heterogeneous mass with calcifications in the third and lateral ventricles involving the septum with dilatation of the frontal and occipital horns of the lateral ventricle. The tumor was resected an interhemispheric transcallosal approach. Histopathology showed tumor cells in sheets and small clusters with intervening thin blood vessels. Tumor cells had round-to-oval nuclei with clear cytoplasm. There were many foci showed calcifications and psammoma bodies. Neuropathological examination supported the diagnosis of anaplastic intraventricular oligodendroglioma. Although intraventricular oligodendrogliomas are slow-growing tumors, their deep location makes the complete removal difficult.
