Abstract

Pineal cysts are being described with increasing frequency since the advent of magnetic resonance imaging. Although pineal cysts are ntal findings om as many as 4% of magnetic resonance imaging studies, symptomatic pineal cysts are quite rare. We present a case of pineal cyst causing aqueductal obstruction with symptomatic hydrocephalus and resultant headache and syncope, which was treated by surgical resection. A review of the relevant literature and discussion follow.
