Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) are rare intracranial neoplasms, especially in the third ventricle. The most common site of presentation of these lesions is in the fourth ventricle in adults and lateral ventricles in children . We report a male child with a posterior third ventricular CPP who presented with the symptoms of increased intracranial pressure. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed hydrocephalus related to a mass in the posterior third ventricle, occluding the aqueduct of Sylvius. After endoscopic third ventriculostomy, tumor was approached through the infratentorial-supracerebellar approach and completely excised. Pathological examination revealed a typical CPP. This entity should be considered an extremely rare cause of a lesion in the posterior third ventricle.
