Oligodendrogliomas rarely occur primarily in the ventricular system. They are presented distinct clinical features when compared to more common hemispheric counterparts. We have reported a case of primary oligodendroglioma in the left lateral ventricle. The tumor was partially resected, a ventriculoperitoneal shunt was placed, and the patient had postoperative radiation therapy. Oligodendrogliomas of the lateral ventricle are rare but should be included in the differential diagnosis of intraventricular tumors.
