Colloid cysts account for approximately 1% of all intracranial tumors and are the most common type of the neuroepithelial cysts. They are benign, that most commonly occur in the third ventricle near the Monro foramen. Sometimes they have no specific sings and symptoms and may be confused and misdiagnosed with other pathology of nervous systems, but sometimes they may produce acute hydrocephalus, brain herniation, and lead to death.
