Abstract

Ependymomas are usually infratentorial and intraventricular. They originate from the ependymal cell lining of the ventricles. Cortical extraventricular supratentorial ependymomas are rare and fewer than 15 cases are reported worldwide. In pediatric age group, seven cases are reported. We report a rare case of 4-year-old boy with right frontoparietal anaplastic ependymoma who underwent gross total excision of lesion.
