A 12-year-old boy with a left temporal tumor diagnosed as clear cell ependymoma (CCE) was reported. CCE is an uncommon central variant of ependymomas with a predilection for the supratentorial region in children. Brain tumors with a honeycomb pattern with clear cells having round nuclei and perinuclear halos could pose a problem in the differential diagnosis with the other tumors with clear cells. There were 41 reported cases of CCE in the literature. In 61% of these cases, tumors were located in the supratentorial region, and in the others in the posterior fossa and spinal cord. However, there was none located in the temporal lobe except in the case presented here.
