We report a young 15-year-old boy with 6 months history of headache, vomiting, and seizure. He underwent septostomy followed by right ventriculoperitoneal shunt for obstructive hydrocephalus and was managed with empirical antituberculosis treatment. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed solid, nodular, enhancing masses in bilateral lateral ventricles and 4th ventricle. Surgical biopsy from 4th ventricular lesion confirmed a B-cell lymphoma. Staging evaluation with MRI positron emission tomography and bone marrow biopsy were normal suggesting an intraventricular primary central nervous system lymphoma.
