Abstract: Gangliogliomas of the lateral ventricle are unusual tumours of the central nervous system. We report a 25-year-old female who presented with a 4-week history of generalized headaches associated with left-sided blepharospasm. Clinical examination revealed bilateral papilloedema but no focal neurological deficits. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a large lesion within the left lateral ventricle. Gross total surgical resection of the lesion was performed through a para-sagittal, trans-callosal approach. Histopathological analysis revealed the diagnosis of ganglioglioma. The post-operative course was uneventful, with complete resolution of both the headaches and blepharospasm. The presentation with an ipsilateral blepharospasm has never previously been reported in the setting of a lateral ventricular tumour.
