Intraventricular cavernoma (IVC) is a rare pathological entity constituting 2.5%–10.8% of cerebral cavernomas. The lateral ventricles are the most frequent site, followed by the third and fourth ventricles. IVCs usually attain a large size compared to parenchymal cavernomas and cause signs and symptoms mainly due to mass effect. IVCs lack specific clinical manifestations and radiological features. Microsurgical excision of IVCs is a safe and effective treatment option. We present a 71-year-old male patient with right lateral ventricle cavernous angioma. The patient underwent microsurgical resection of the vascular lesion with good neurological outcome.
