Just as you wouldn't bother taunting a Cardinals fan about a Yankees loss, you wouldn't attack tumors from the lateral ventricle with the same drug you'd use on a tumor arising from the third ventricle
2) Finally, there are several surgical methods to remove a third ventricle
Colloid cysts of the third ventricle
with fatal outcome: a report of two cases and review of the literature.
Our study is the first to report the effect of galanin infused into the third ventricle
on thyroid hormones in ruminants.
1 cm colloid cyst at the anterior aspect of the third ventricle
, at the foramen of Monro, resulting in marked obstructive hydrocephalus.
On computed tomography (CT) scans, a chordoid glioma presents as a hyperattenuating mass arising from the third ventricle
that homogeneously enhances following contrast administration (Figure 2).
M's CT scan revealed dilation of both lateral ventricles and the third ventricle
, with sparing of the fourth ventricle, findings commonly associated with INPH.
5 cm was present within the anterior third ventricle
at the level of the foramen of Monro.
Noncontrast computed tomography (CT) revealed a 1-cm mass near the posterior aspect of the third ventricle
, which resulted in obstructive hydrocephalus.
The third ventricle
develops from the cavity in the midbrain (mesencephalon) and the fourth ventricle from the cavity in the hindbrain (rhombencephalon).
After completing the physical examination, FH's brain MRI was reviewed and revealed ventriculogmegaly of the anterior and posterior horns, a broadened third ventricle
, and an apparently normal fourth ventricle.
Giant posterior communicating artery aneurysm presenting as third ventricle
mass with obstructive hydrocephalus.
It can then extend into the third ventricle
or even to the opposite lateral ventricle (Majos, Coll, & Pons, 1997).
lateral ventricle, the third ventricle
, and the fourth ventricle (Fig
While they usually arise in the fourth ventricle in adults (60%), they have also been described in the lateral and third ventricles
as well as in the spinal cord (2).
