      The computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearances of an intraventricular craniopharyngioma are discussed. The unusual CT appearance of our case is compared to the previous 13 cases in the CT literature. The MRI scan represents the only known description of an intraventricular craniopharyngioma in the current literature. The characteristics of our case are compared to the MRI appearance of suprasellar craniopharyngiomas.
