Case Report: Intracranial Immature Teratoma of the Lateral Ventricle: A Case Report

Keyvan Mostofi* and Marie Josephine WANDJI

Teratomas represent about 0.5% of all intracranial tumours and 2-4% of intracranial tumours in children. They generally arise from brain midline structures such as suprasellar region, pineal gland, quadrigeminal plate, walls of the third ventricle and cerebellar vermis. Teratomas localized in the lateral ventricle are extremely rare. We report a case of massive intracranial teratoma of lateral ventricle related with the choroid plexus in a 2-day-old female. She was born to the first pregnancy of a 26-year-old healthy woman. The pregnancy was uneventful until the 32nd week of gestation. Antenatal ultrasound scan discovered a massive macrocephaly with hydrocephalus and a right lateral ventricular choroid plexus mass. A caesarean section was performed because of failed vaginal delivery. The newborn weighed 2790g and her head circumference was 42 cm. During the first day, she presented oxygen desaturation several times and died on the second day after a cardiac arrest. An autopsy was performed. The histologic diagnosis was immature teratoma made.

William S Baek*

Carbamazepine (CBZ) is a tricyclic compound, structurally similar to imipramine as well as phenytoin, with a ureide moiety (-N-CO-NH2) present in its heterocyclic ring.
