Abstract

The authors present an intracranial enterogenous cyst of the fourth ventricle in a Chinese woman having symptoms of headache, dizziness and vertigo for approximately six months. A computerized tomography study of the brain disclosed a low density lesion within the fourth ventricle. A cystic tumor was completely removed and a histopathological examination diagnosed it is an enterogenous cyst; a rare lesion. During the post-operative follow-up, her symptoms gradually resolved and she was free of complaints within two years.
