  • The authors report an unusual case of a myxopapillary ependymoma arising from the lateral ventricle. The patient, a 37-year-old woman, developed recurrent symptoms including scotomata, disorientation, and headache during two successive pregnancies before the definitive diagnosis. The causes of this ependymoma variant and its relationship to pregnancy are discussed.
