Primary intraventricular meningiomas (IVM) are rare, and are even less seen in men. There are only very few reports in Nigerian medical literature and in our hospital, this report is the first. We present herewith a 35-year-old man with clinical suspicion of pituitary macroadenoma on account of headache and visual impairment. He had Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and histological diagnosis of intraventricular meningioma. This case highlights the value of presurgery MRI as well as the characteristic MRI features which could enable a noninvasive diagnosis. The patient had successful surgical removal and has been followed-up for 2 years.
