Subependymoma was first described by Scheinker in 1945; it frequently occurs in the ventricles and rarely in the spinal canal representing 0.7% of all central nervous system tumours. Most of these intraventricular tumours are subclinical entities, remaining of small size and discovered at autopsy with 0.4%incidence. We report a case of subependymoma with a completely exophytic growth from the foramen of Luscka: only a similar one has been described in the literature but with a lesser cysternal involvement. Neuroradiological and anatomopathological features of subependymoma are discussed.
