The ­authors ­report 2 cas­es of col­loid ­cyst of the 3rd ven­tri­cle (­both ­patients pre­vi­ous­ly asymp­to­mat­ic) diag­nosed ­after ­head trau­ma. Neurological dete­ri­ora­tion due to biven­tric­u­lar hydro­ceph­a­lus, ren­der­ing nec­es­sary an ­urgent bilat­er­al CSF shunt­ing, was ­observed. The pos­sible rela­tion­ship ­between clin­i­cal dete­ri­ora­tion and ­head inju­ry in ­these cas­es is dis­cussed.
