Pineal yolk sac tumors are rare. We present a case of pineal yolk sac tumor in a 15-year-old boy with hydrocephalus and possible cerebrospinal dissemination. He was treated by surgical excision, craniospinal axis irradiation, PVBE (cisplatin, vinblastine, bleomycin, and etoposide) chemotherapy, and intrathecal methotrexate chemotherapy. There was no tumor recurrence at follow-up 2.5 years after treatment.
