We report the case of an 11-year-old girl with a giant meningioma of the III ventricle who presented with signs and symptoms of raised intracranial pressure. The tumor was removed through a transcallosal approach. A review of current literature yielded 16 previous cases of meningiomas of the III ventricle in the pediatric age group. The usual form of presentation is that of a midline syndrome with no localizing signs. In the cases that were operated on, surgical intervention was rewarding and mortality was low. A very unusual finding in the meningioma that we report was its origin in the floor of the III ventricle, a circumstance that has only once been described previously.
