The authors present the case of an 11-year-old boy with an intraventricular chordoid meningioma, which is a rare presentation of prolonged fever of unknown origin due to a rare tumor in a rare location. The fever resolved after excision of the lesion. Subsequent imaging revealed recurrence at 1 year. After a repeat excision and fractionated radiotherapy, the patient has remained disease free 5 years after the first surgery. Very few cases of intraventricular chordoid meningioma have been reported to date. The pathological features and clinical course are described. A review of the literature describing management options for this tumor type, recently found to have a higher recurrence rate, is described herein.
