Central Neurocytoma (CN) is a rare clinicopathological entity that has been recently recognized. The main features of CN include; a lateral ventricular location, occurrence in young adults, characteristic radiological findings, resemblance to oligodendroglioma or ependymoma on light microscopy, a favorable prognosis, and neuronal origin seen on immunohistochemistry. In this paper one case of central neurocytoma is presented with special emphasis on pathological and MRI findings.
