Abstract

A 44-year-old woman presented with intraventricular hemorrhage and a calcified avascular mass lesion in the anterior third ventricle. This lesion proved to be a densely calcified variant of cavernous hemangioma, namely, hemangioma calcificans. Twelve previous cases of this lesion have been reported in the neurosurgical literature. Association with spontaneous intraventricular hemorrhage has not been previously reported. The clinical presentation, radiological appearance, surgical findings, and histopathology of this lesion are discussed and a brief review of the literature is presented.
