Central neurocytomas are considered to be WHO Grade II lesions with good prognosis. The peak incidence is between 3rd and 5th decades. They are usually intraventricular and most often arise in the lateral ventricles near the foramen of Monro. Symptoms are related to increased intracranial pressure. On imaging studies, they may show calcification or cystic areas. They are composed of a uniform population of round cells with scant cytoplasm in a fibrillary background.
