Colloid Cyst of the Third Ventricle: Clinical Improvement and Satisfactory Outcome after Cystoperitoneal Shunt (Case Report)
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Surgery,
Aims: To report a case of colloid cyst of the third ventricle, the flow of diagnosis, and the management of the case.
Case Description: We reported a case of a colloid cyst of the third ventricle in a 24-year-old man. The patient presented with major complaint of both the upper and lower left extremities. The patient often experienced headaches and felt weak in the upper and lower left limbs, which worsened until the patient could not walk and do activities. Head’s MRI with contrast obtained mass predominant cystic mixed with blood, encapsulated, bounded firmly located in suprasellar. The cystoperitoneal shunt was performed on the patient.
Discussion: A patient was reported with the diagnosis of colloid cyst of the third cerebral ventricle with non-communicant hydrocephalus, underwent cystoperitoneal shunt. After CP shunt, the patient’s condition improved, clinical symptoms of headache decreased, motor strength of the limb increased, and the patient could do some independent activites.
Conclusions: One case of colloid cyst of the third cerebral ventricle was handled with the cystoperitoneal shunt. The patient had non-communicant hydrocephalus due to fluid obstruction. The patient’s condition improved after the cystoperitoneal shunt. The operation was done without further complications.
