Vinayak Raje, Sunil Yadav, Pandurang Barve, Devdutta Patil and Bhushan Shinde

Introduction: Majority of ependymomas are infratentorial and intraventricular. Supratentorial and purely cortical extraventricular ependymomas are extremely rare and only six cases were reported so far.

Case report: We report a 12-year-old female with right parieto occipital ependymoma. She had complete excision of the lesion.

Conclusion: Pure cortical, supratentorial extraventricular ependymoma in paediatrics age group is a rarity.
